This model of classroom management uses the Preamble of the Constitution as a basis for student behavior, motivation, goal setting, discipline, and classroom physical arrangement. Students memorize the preamble and are taught the meaning of the words used in the document. They use the concepts as a standard to live by within the classroom.
This package includes classroom settings, directions on how to break the document down into meaningful sections, application of the concepts into behavioral objectives, picture books to use that support the management style, and discussion guides.
This program has been effectively used in fourth grade classrooms with exceptional results.
