There was another clear winner in the poll this week, with Classroom Rules winning out over Ice-breakers and Job-seeking. Thus Classroom Rules is what we will be discussing tomorrow from 8pm on Twitter.
I would imagine that almost all of us face behaviour and discipline issues in our jobs at some stage, and classroom rules can help to combat this, and create a well-structured and positive environment for our learners.
Our experience of rule-making is going to be extremely important to the chat, so before we get started you might want to think about how the following questions relate to your experiences past and present, and how can they explain both successes and failures.
- Who makes the rules in your class, and why?
- What do you try to achieve through the rules?
- How do you make the rules?
- How are the rules communicated/displayed?
- How are the rules implemented?
- What are some effective strategies to deal with rule breakers?
- What are the roles of punishments and rewards?
These questions are intended to give people a head start during the chat, but are not the limits. Please feel free to come with questions, ideas and experiences of your own. I hope you can join us from 8pm on Sunday.
