Basic classroom rules

Overall rating 4 out of 54 (26 ratings)

Last updated 23 September 2014, created 31 May 2011, viewed 48,315

Every class needs to know what the rules of the room are; this short document includes a brief explanation of why students classes need rules, ten simple rules that help everyone succeed, and a behaviour contract section at the bottom. I find this sheet works best when students have every rule expla More…ined to them in detail at the start of term, and then it gets stuck in their book, with signatures for homework.

Useful, however I find it better to reframe words into the positive #2. Contribute to a quiet working environment where students only speak when called upon by the teacher.... sort of thing

Blah di blah di blah - seriously? Surely departments/ whole school policies should cover much of this.
