Routines and procedures help me as a student because they help me understand what is expected from me every day.

How I feel about routines and procedures is I feel safe. I feel comfortable when I’m with my class because we all respect each other.
Show ‘em who’s the boss!

The fact that I know
what I am going to do every day in
school is helping my grades, but knowing what you are going to do every day is what I find very boring.

taking notes
Last year...every day, the rules changed and I hated how one day you can do this and the next day you get in trouble... That’s why I like routines and procedures.”
The routines and procedures make it easy to come prepared and makes the day predictable.
1. Use enforceable limits.
2. Provide choices.
3. Deliver consequences
with empathy.
I feel like I get more education because when we walk into a classroom, we do bellwork, which I think improves my skills.
The bell does not dismiss
the class. You dismiss the class, with a pleasant expression of farewell.

Calm, assertive energy
"Do not confuse procedures with discipline... Discipline concerns how students behave. Procedures concern how things are done. Discipline has penalties and rewards. Procedures have no penalties or rewards" (169).
"It is important to introduce the discipline plan on the first day of school" (147).
"You should only have three to five rules" (147).
“To increase student learning and achievement, increase the amount of time students are working" (197).
"Have the students repeat the procedure until it becomes a routine" (175).
