Learning allows a student to modify his or her behavior to suit a situation and to be more successful – academically and behaviorally. The classroom management seminar provides a very powerful format for you to follow to develop your own lesson plans for rules and procedures. Teaching to rules, procedures and expectations will help your students learn all of the skills they will need to be successful in your classroom.Successful teachers devote a great deal of time during the first few weeks of school to the careful teaching of rules and routines. Instead of telling and posting, they teach and practice crucial classroom routines just as they would academics. Teacher expectations for appropriately following through on procedures and routines lays the foundation for the structured environment all children need to learn and all teachers need to teach. Teaching to rules and procedures will set the stage for structure in your classroom. It directly teaches students HOW to be successful in your classroom and enable you to hold students accountable for what you have taught them to do!
