There are a host of benefits to intentionally promoting clear and shared classroom rules and expectations. Students know what to expect, they understand the learning tasks better, things in the class run more smoothly with less confusion, and students have a clearer sense of what it takes to perform. The absence of clear expectations will create practical problems and an environment of uneasiness in the class that will lead to confusion, frustration and hostility when expectations clash. It is critical that students understand the classroom rules/expectations and procedures from the beginning of the school year. Taking time to go over each expectation and giving each student/parent a copy of them can pay off in the long run.
The set includes a handbook that can be given to students/parents. It can even be glued into a notebook. Chose the male or female teacher version, and choose whether to print it in booklet or packet form.
With the purchase of this set you get these easily customizable documents:
