I am trying to figure out what I want my classroom expectations to be this year. I was thinking of using the habits of work from my previous school and really trying to teach them effectively. The habits of work are active learning, collaboration, respect, and ownership. (I might replace or get rid of ownership because it’s so similar to active learning...thoughts?) I was thinking of saying that these are our classroom expectations or values. I would want to briefly introduce each value and provide a few examples and discuss them as a class. I feel like rules like no electronics, for example, would be covered by active learning and I could make that explicit. Then I was thinking of having the students work in groups to make a poster and come up with more examples or a visual model of some sort for a habit of work. I would then have the kids present to the class. I feel like reviewing all 4 in one day would be a lot but we could review 2 each day and do an activity each day. I would love to hear your thoughts about how you teach classroom expectations. I also feel like I need to go over group norms...but I’m doing some activities with group norms and I might be able to fit it in with collaboration.
