Students generate important classroom behaviors for their success. In group discussions, students create rules for a social contract.
This worksheet guides students in reflecting on what behaviors they need (from themselves, others, or the teacher) to be successful in the classroom. They meet with two clock buddies to identify the most important rules for behavior.
While meeting with their 12:00 clock partner, students pick and write 3 "We need..." statements.
While meeting with their 6:00 clock partner, students pick and write 4 "We will always..." statements.
Following this activity, create a large class contract. As a class, students pick 5-10 rules to write on a large piece of paper. All students sign the bottom of the large piece of paper, signing in agreement to the social contract.
