Question

If you can't notice who is off task, how can you effectively keep a class on task? Maybe that's what you're asking?

I would look for a position where I worked with small groups and not a full class. I have good classroom management, and can't always tell who is talking if I'm not looking at them, but I've never heard of not being able to visually tell who is off task.

The only other suggestion is to have them work together as a class, stressing the positive. All for one and one for all. Celebrate a productive reading class with a GoNoodle video (free online resource) or a 30 second dance party. Keep the celebrations (I don't reward expected behaviors, but we celebrate successes.)

Good luck!
