In The Classroom
I feel that you have to start by Building Community in Your Classroom
right from day one.
Classroom Rules/Expectations Develop your class rules/expectations with your
students. Periodically review them. Use it as a teaching lesson about

One rule system:
"No one has the right to interfere with the learning, safety, or well
being of another student."
Make sure you let your students know that they matter.
