Hopefully this will be an ongoing effort, not a “fly on the wall” project. You will be offered a number of workable tips.
If you are very serious about it, stay tuned for some hair-raising ideas that you may or may not use or agree to. Please do not blame me for all of the attention Teacher is paying you once you apply these suggestions.
You have to pick and choose your movements. For example, during classroom disruptions, find the right moment to pick up something that is being dropped by the teacher. You may want to clean the board for the teacher or open the window. Try to think of the teacher’s next steps. She’s your teacher, you should have studied his every move in the classroom. You know whether the teacher is in the class before you or comes after you. When the teacher comes after you, what does the teacher usually do as a routine? For example, if he comes into class and immediately starts cleaning the blackboard, ask to do so. If she comes into the classroom and throws away the trash, do that for the teacher? Study, study and learn from your teacher every day. I guarantee you no other student will try to help the teacher. The other students may see what you are doing for the teacher, but they are just asking why you are helping them. You are in a state of emptiness or nothing.
Know the tasks and the reaction as well as possible with a raised hand. Don’t do it too much or you will be called the teacher’s pet. Take on difficult tasks or tasks that no one wants to do. That puts you in touch with the teacher straight away.
If possible, try to bring good news to the teacher. It doesn’t have to be daily, but try something that gets the teacher’s attention. For example, you know his car, so bring something related to his type and type of car. Try to notice something the teacher brought into class from their own shelves at home. Read the teachers’ bio and make sure you include enough information to make a difference. Try not to be a warehouse keeper or indicate how much information you are collecting. This will be a stealth operation.
If you are in good standing with the other students, try to control them. That is, if they are too talkative, tell them in front of the teacher. Yes, you would stand up for the teacher.
Look for a smile from the teacher or some kind of approval. I strongly recommend shaking hands with the teacher on the first day. You don’t have to bring an apple to sit on your desk. That human contact while shaking hands can make a world of difference.
Of course, you can do the crazy thing by making clean and appropriate jokes in class. Say things out loud that support the teacher’s lesson plan. Stand out with good attitude, care, and clothing. We want Teacher to see you as an uninterrupted effort.
You might very well get up in class and shout something. This will get you immediate attention and maybe some detention, so let’s not do that.
If you don’t enjoy speaking in public, prepare and say something original or read it in front of the class.
A traditional way to get the teacher’s attention in a very disruptive class is to stand up to answer a question. Most students do not stand up and answer a question. You will be the exception to the rule.
When all is said and done, spend time meditating on how to get the teacher’s attention. Slowly allow your brain to bring most of your conscious and unconscious thoughts together.
Finally, if you want the teacher’s attention all the time, not just when the class is upside down, ask the teacher for help, guidance, or whatever, in mental silence. They know and understand a little about self-talk. Well, this approach is like talking to the teacher in your own head. That would be head to head. Have you never spoken to animals and babies? Didn’t they respond with smiles and movements. Did you know that you understand? Did you have a thought and a close friend finished the thought or answered it for you? We see this remarkable achievement with married people who have been together for many years.
