I used this acronym as my "classroom rules" for Seminary. They are Thou Shalts, instead of Thou Shalt Nots. I find this creates a positive atmosphere in the classroom, where I'm asking them to behave a certain way as opposed to constantly telling students to stop, stop, stop.
SLAMM Stands for
- Sit up
- Look at the Speaker
- Apply the scriptures to your life
- Make relevant comments
- Mark your scriptures
During class, if someone is talking over someone else, I might say, "Adam, are you SLAMMing Jake?" to help them focus. If someone is slumping down in the couches, I remind the class to SLAMM. It's a fast way to remind everyone what the rules are and to stay engaged.
