BACK TO SCHOOL: CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS
At the beginning of the school year, work with your students to develop a set of written classroom expectations ( or rules ), with a reward and consequence system built in. You and the students should agree to them, leaving you to monitor and manage these student-created expectations, absent of bias, and actioned with consistency. This process allows students to become accountable to their own student created system, making it more likely that they will adhere to their own rules.
In a positive classroom environment, students should be inspired to encourage each other, and peer pressure toward predetermined student-created expectations will naturally occur, leaving you innocent if action toward consequence is required.
