Classroom Expectations

Slightly different to rules
Rules are meant to be tested and broken
Expectations are what we expect

Without expectations we are like feathers in the wind

How do we get them

How many we should have

How do we display them

What do we do when people fall below our expectation

Expectation examples

Do my tasks
Have materials
Be where I belong
Control myself
Follow directions
Speak considerately
