ensure correct bend, ensure quality of trot (if you have a crap trot, at best you will get a crap canter, generaly you wont get anything), Sit to the trot, half halt, outside leg back, inside leg on the girth, squeeze.
When schooling young horses I will use voice aids to back up my legs as they will have been taught voice aids when lunging and long reining. The aim generaly is that I wean them off the voice aid and on to seat and leg aids ASAP.
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
