Procedures for Developing Classroom Rules: Students are more likely to follow the rules if they have a hand in creating them. For this reason, within the first couple of days I will host a discussion with the students about the reasons for having rules clarify the need for them. The discussion will also include ideas of how I’d vision our classroom, such as a creating a positive workplace and asking students in what ways would be able to create this space. Following the discussions, students will work in small groups to come up with three rules they think is most important. After giving students time in small groups, we will then come back as a whole group and I have will write down some of the rules the students found most important. I will generalize the rules they have suggested under categories such as respect and responsibility. From
Mariah McCrea EDF 3251 there, students will each be able to vote on three rules they feel most important. Lastly, I will explain to the students how I will modify the rules in order to make them easy to understand. Empowering students to share thoughts allows culturally diverse students needs and feelings to be met. I’ll make sure to ask them for their ideas, allowing them to express their values, strengths, and experiences. Furthermore, I will in depth explain the rules so they students feel comfortable and understand why the rules were suggested and needed. Then students will be able to also participate in voting for the classroom rules. Classroom Rules: Be respectful. o Use kind words, listen to others, treat materials nicely, respect personal space Walk quietly with hands glued your side. Raise your hand to share ideas. Work hard. o Be responsible, prepared, work completion, self- management, organized Obey all school rules o On the playground, library, or cafeteria Procedures for Teaching Rule Following: Once rules have been created with the students and I’ve made my
Mariah McCrea EDF 3251 modifications, it is now time to teach and better explain the rules so that students have a better understanding. The classroom rules will be displayed at an eye level for students with visuals next to them. The poster will be colorful and attention grabbing for students. Aside from the poster I will create visuals and labels (in both English and Spanish) to help better explain the rules to not only general ed. Students but also to ELL and SPED students. These labels and demonstrations will be posted around the classroom. I will discuss specific expectations and emphasize on the positive parts of the rules. Following the discussion students will practice and give different gives examples that properly follow the rules. Throughout the day I will begin teaching certain procedures as they are needed, such as major transitions. During lessons when students are not following rules you can always reinforce the rules in a positive manner. For example, if a student is talking out of turn, simply say “I know that it isn’t always
