Product Description
A Student Centered Lesson for Classroom Culture

This resource for building classroom culture is an excellent first day of school or first week of school activity. In the first lesson of this two-lesson bundle, students read and respond to an original text about values and communities and are challenged to think about the idea of shared values and why they are important to communities like classrooms. In the second lesson, students examine a list of values and decide which of those will become the classroom values for the year. Then, students work to assign concrete words and actions to each value, and reflect on their own strengths, weaknesses and value preferences.
This lesson is an excellent way to invest your class in the learning of rules and procedures by giving them a collective say in the values and norms of the classroom. Further, this resource is an excellent way to integrate rigor, higher-level thinking, reading comprehension and writing into your lessons for the first week of school. This lesson on building classroom culture is an excellent way for secondary teachers to meld content and culture during those crucial first days of school.
This download includes PDFs of the following:
-All student materials (6 pages)
-Answer Key (5 pages)

This resource was designed to take 2 90-minute class periods to complete. It will work best with students who are developmentally ready to contend with some degree of abstract thinking, generally those in 8th grade and above. This resource may work for advanced 6th and 7th graders as well.
