Transcript of Classroom Norms, Rules & Procedures

Procedures are routines that are needed for effective operation of the classroom

Procedures can make or break a lesson or classroom transition
Communicate norms and procedures
Enforce and reinforce
Norms are an agreement among the members of
the classroom community about how they will
treat one another
Rules should be stated
so that students understand what is expected of them and what it will look like.
Why are norms and procedures important?
"The number one problem in the classroom is not discipline; it is the lack of procedures and routines."

Procedures must be modeled and continually reinforced through explicit feedback.
Classroom teachers provide an array of tangible and intangible rewards or logical consequences to enforce procedures.

The student must be able to do what you are asking of him.

A procedure must never run against human nature.
It's unwise to enforce a procedure that requires more resources than you can afford to enforce.
