    I like the organization suggestion.

    I like to cover the code of conduct on the fly. It's posted on the wall, but we don't discuss it much until someone crosses a line. That way I can say, "Oh, you don't know how we doing things in this class. Here we never make fun of anyone. You must be thinking you are still in last year's class."

    Then someone will chime in, "Mr. Blackthorn, Mrs. White wouldn't let us make fun of people last year either."

    My class helps come up with our code of conduct.

    I do think it's wise for all teachers, and compulsory for 'rookies', to make rules, procedures, conduct expectations and consequences clear. From day one.

    I agree. I had absolutely no idea (a) what routines, rules, & procedures I would even need, much less what I wanted or how to teach them my first year!

    I think that article did discuss establishing routines.
