In The Classroom

Start by Building Community in Your Classroom right from day one.

 Develop your class rules/expectations with your students. Periodically review them.  Classroom Rules/Expectations

  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. My You Matter page
and they can learn from their mistakes.  My Learning from Mistakes page

Teacher Tip

I would have students who had a question or problem either speak to me before class started or give me a note. I told them I had no idea what was going on in their lives or the difficulties they faced. Example if they had a death in their family, had to stay up late to baby-sit siblings, had a disagreement with another student.
