Active supervision is the process of monitoring students’ academic learning and behavior where the teacher moves, scans and interacts frequently with students. When teachers effectively and actively supervise, student engagement and appropriate behavior increases. Active supervision allows for frequent encouragement and timely corrections, if needed. This is an effective practice that can be utilized in any setting-classroom, hallway, playground, community or home, etc to prevent problem behavior and promote appropriate behavior. At Mickle school, teachers are encouraged to reflect on their classroom and lesson plans to make sure they are including active supervision principles to increase the likelihood that students will meet academic and behavioral expectations.
