Hi Michelle - Thanks for reminding us about the power of "Proximal Praise" - when we compliment appropriate behaviors (in this case, students who are paying attention,) to influence other students to be similarly compliant. It's definitely a strategy that works - and one I sometimes forget to use - so thank you! Your movie-themed call and response sounds like fun, too! Best ... Alycia
