As a former literacy intervention specialist, I perfected classroom management with just three Rules of Engagement. While I expect some cynics will think that they leave too many potential loopholes, my Rules worked just fine for me. In fact, coupled with engaging multimedia presentations, my Rules enabled me to teach even the most unruly elementary students with absolutely no need for rewards or negative consequences! Here's a presentation that you can use to introduce your students to the Rules of Engagement - just follow the built-in instructions. The animations work best if you open the presentation with MS PowerPoint. (You can also download it onto your computer for easier access.) What worked so well for me may work for you too!
