A train whistle can be a lighthearted, yet effective form of classroom management, instructional coach David Ginsburg writes in this blog post. The sound of the whistle can quickly draw students' attention, especially when they are working in groups, and can be used to form a system of routines, such as two toots to tell students to move their seats into position for group work. "Everything we do as teachers should facilitate learning, and a train whistle does this by improving classroom efficiency," Ginsburg writes.
