Class Procedures and Expectations


Published on

Establishing procedures within the first few days of class is essential in order to establish a comfortable learning environment where students know and understand teacher and class expectations. I show this slideshow on the first day to briefly go over procedures. I also post these procedures/expectations on a bulletin board for the first weeks of school.
