2) During testing and quizzing, use approved calculator, pencil, and appropriate resources (if allowed). Additionally, there is zero tolerance for cheating, so desks are to be separated from your neighbors by two to three feet. Pencils must be sharpened before the test or quiz starts. 3) During group work time, talking must be at a low level and pertain to what the assignment is about. Teacher and other groups should not have to talk over other groups. Developing rules and regulations for a classroom is a vital responsibility for an effective teacher.

4 Task #3 teacher when it comes to establishing rules and expectations in my classroom, and to not be a teacher that rules his classes to the point where students dread coming to class and want to put forth very little effort because there is no chance at being successful. That means that my classroom rules will be written to be prepared for common missteps from students, and the expectations will foster an environment where my students believe that they can be successful in and out of the classroom. When I was in high school, I remember how teachers stressed the important rules that will not be tolerated in their classrooms. They set the tone from the first day of school for what will be accepted and what would not be. In his book, Discipline in the Secondary Classroom: A Positive Approach to Behavior Management , Randall S. Sprick recommends that teachers identify misbehaviors that occur the most frequently and develop rules that will prevent these misbehaviors from occurring (Sprick, 2013, 109-110). He also suggests that new teachers reach out to experienced teachers that teach in a similar subject to gain insight on how to create classroom rules. When it comes to developing classroom expectations, Sprick suggests that teachers do not merely tell their students what the expectations are on the first day of school. Instead, he suggests that teachers communicate and teach their students on how to strive towards the teacher’s vision, what it will take to be successful, and how to function in order to become successful (Sprick, 2013, 133). C. Classroom Routines Before Class Starts 1) Students arrive to desk with materials for class: homework, book, notebook, writing instruments, calculator, and class folder 2) Have homework, notebook, writing instrument, and calculator on desk, and book and folder under desk or on rack attached to chair. 3) Talk quietly amongst selves until bell rings.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
