PLUS A COPY of my syllabus where I reference the affirmation and for you to use if you wish.
This forms has been years in the making. I have used it successfully in my classroom for the last 6 years. For years I would drive myself crazy wondering what was the best classroom rules a teacher could have. AND have students follow them all year. Well after reading lots about the subject I came up with three simple rules. But what about the the other rules and procedures you ask? That is where this form comes in- AFFIRMATION. Twenty rules/procedures that we review the first two days of school and follow for the rest of the year. I would take my time on each one. Model the right way and the wrong way. Students always found the wrong way to be funny. Have students initial after each one and wham-bam I had them hooked for the year. Anytime a student would not follow a procedure I would reference the affirmation. They signed it and took ownership.
