Today, I want to highlight SLANT! Slant stands for:
S: Sit Up
A: Ask and Answer Questions
N: Nod Your Head
T: Track the Speaker
This is a simple yet very useful tool to use in the classroom. My goal this year is to start from the beginning of the year and it will become habit before long and this way I know that I have will the full attention from my students (and it didn't take much time to get them attentive).

I have attached a FREEBIE SLANT poster that Beth made for our staff this year!
