Define Class Rules (a.k.a. Classroom Procedures)These are fine classroom rules. However, just posting them on the wall does not insure they will be followed. I have students that are learning disabled in reading. They could care less about a "stinking" poster on the wall. So, as part of our school's discipline policy, we spend class time teaching what these rules. Instead of calling them rules, I prefer the word procedures. Also, in our school, we do not have warning bells and tardy bells, but we may add them this coming year. I personally have to program our school's bells and when the power blinks, our bells shut down and they have to be reprogrammed. So, before we go to tardy bells, someone is going to have to purchase one of those continuous power supply or backup batteries. [note to self: remember that.]
The discipline committee must decide what sort of rules will be enforced school wide. Try to limit these rules to about four or five. I think that it’s easy to enforce a handful of rules that everyone knows and can even spout off the top of their heads; but when you get so many rules, that no one can remember without looking at the paper then you will have too many rules for everyone to enforce. My own school developed these rules. All rules should be stated in their positive format and not in negatives, i.e., instead of don’t hit people, we found a way to say this by our second rule:
The class rules should be posted in every classroom and referred to often.
- Be in your assigned seat ready to work when the tardy bell finishes its ring.
- Keep hands, feet, books, and objects to yourself.
- Speak courteously to your teacher and fellow students.
- Follow the teacher's directions.
- Bring only those items which are essential to the educational process.
