A Positive Learning Environment(In a land called Honah Lee …): A Positive Learning Environment (In a land called Honah Lee …) Gives the student ownership of the subject matter by ensuring … that each student has the tools to learn that students promote one another’s learning through positive interactions and adherence to rules and procedures that the teacher clearly conveys behavioral and academic expectations such that students understand at all times what actions to take in order to succeed and excel RULES: RULES Stay in your seat Raise your hand Respect your teacher, your classmates, and yourselfAdded a few …: Added a few … Stay in your seat Raise your hand Respect your teacher, your classmates, and yourself Be prepared Participate Except for the original three, these rules were good ideas but DUMB because I did not enforce them. Consequences: Consequences Verbal Warning Writing Assignment – (COPYING) + form for parents to sign (may be repeated as appropriate) Detention Office ReferralWhat didn’t work …: What didn’t work … Copying consequences … TOO much paperwork for meIndividual Rewards: Individual Rewards Verbal Praise Stickers on Excellent Assignments A-Wall (Excellent Student Work Displayed) Student of the Week (includes letter to parents) Tickets to buy: Supplies (pen or paper) Homework pass Free Test Question Book from reading corner Individual Rewards Realistically: Individual Rewards Realistically Verbal Praise – more effective than you might think Stickers – my students loved them A-wall – still think it’s a good idea … never did it Student of the week – See above Tickets – worked even before I posted what they would buy … it’s a recognition thingGroup Rewards: Group Rewards 10 minutes of Subject-Related games (for an exceptionally good class period – that day) 30 minutes of Educational Games (for an exceptionally good week – on Fridays) “Culture” class (for exceptional performance on a project or test) Cookies from the teacher / Party (Best class??)

(too much to do)Ms. Smith’s Classroom PROCEDURES: Ms. Smith’s Classroom PROCEDURES Entering Exiting Bathroom Finishing Early Turning in Homework/Late Work Entering the Classroom: Entering the Classroom The teacher will greet each student at the door The students will progress to their seats with a minimum of fuss The students will be in their assigned seat when the bell rings or will be counted tardyEntering the Classroom: Entering the Classroom A MUST-have procedure Sets the tone for the class School district might limit your options on this one Do-now essentialExiting the Classroom: Exiting the Classroom The teacher dismisses the class The students do not pack up belongings until the class is dismissed The students exit the classroom with a minimum of fuss (no play-fighting, no running) Bathroom: Bathroom Each student receives 2 bathroom passes per 9 weeks Only one student may be out of the classroom to use the bathroom at a time Pass may only be used with permission Time of departure will be marked as the student exits the classroom – pass will be collected upon re-entry If a student is absent from the classroom over 5 minutes, disciplinary action will be takenFinishing Early: Finishing Early A list of journal topics will be posted around the class – at least 5 must be completed by the end of the 9 weeks A bookshelf of fun books will be available at the back of the class – students may raise hand for permission to get a book Subject-Area games (word searches, etc) will be available upon request Students will not be permitted to put heads on desk during class even if work is complete (excepting test days)Finishing Early – For Real: Finishing Early – For Real Journal topics – didn’t do it [lets good kids get MORE ahead?] Bookshelf – did it, loved it, worked Games – might have worked, didn’t try Putting your head down – yes, please! just leave me and the rest of the class ALONE Alternate solution: sometimes they actually help EACH OTHER -- love it. Also – have them do your work!!!!!!!!! Turning in Homework/Late Work: Turning in Homework/Late Work Students will put homework in a designated tray each day (one per period) only at the beginning or end of the class period Late work will only be accepted with an excused absence and within two days of the assignment One student per period will copy notes and assignments for that day’s absentees – worksheets for the day will be available in a folder on the wallHmwk/Late Work: Hmwk/Late Work Designated tray – yes Within two days – too much for me to keep track of, took 30% off regardless Folder of assignments / worksheets for each class -- sounds like a good idea, perhaps you’ll want to try it this year Parents will … : Parents will … Sign the syllabus at the beginning of the year Receive a (positive) phone call within the first 3 weeks of school Receive notification if student gets a copying assignment (sheet to sign) or more severe disciplinary action Parents will … (cont’d): Parents will … (cont’d) Upon request, receive notification of upcoming major assignments + tests Receive an open invitation to schedule an appointment with the teacher OR drop by unannounced on 1 designated afternoon/week Receive notification about classroom needs (Supplies, guest lecturers, party stuff) and a form to designate what they would be willing to contribute (set-up time, materials, expertise, etc)Parents: Parents Didn’t call home enough Had them sign the syllabus and detention notifications Made a website and began on online gradebook 2nd semester – GOOD IDEAS for people like me who don’t call home enough, b/c then they call you!!!End Result: End Result My classroom management philosophy: Students want to succeed and if you encourage them and clearly convey your expectations a “positive learning environment” will result.
