Establishing Norms, Rules and Procedures
Transcript of Establishing Norms, Rules and Procedures
Rules identify general expectations or standards regarding student behavior.
Procedures and routines describe those behaviors that will help students realize the rules (Mazarno, 2007).
Rules help create a predictable atmosphere that limit classroom disruptions and encourage children to use self-control
How can we involve students in the development of rules and procedures?
Ensure that students understand the reason for the routine.
Clarify the procedure through modeling.
Allow students opportunities to practice the routine through rehearsal.
Try not to overwhelm students by teaching too many routines at once. The process of establishing routines and procedures may take several days.
Remember that it will probably be necessary to revisit this process as you see the need.
Ask students to each write down three rules that they would like to follow in the classroom.
Ask them what rules would make them feel safe and happy
Go through the rules together, and select some of them to become official rules, or have students vote.
You can also have students help decide consequences for breaking the rules!
If you find that a rule or procedure is not serving the classroom, revisit and revise with your students.

Consequences work best when they:

Relate directly to the rules and procedures
Possess a range of intensity or hierarchy of alternatives
Are natural and logical in the school environment
The most important indicator of the effectiveness of procedures in your classroom: starting them on day 1.
Set the tone for the year and be clear about expectations
You will have a much better experience through the year.
