  • The philosophy stated simply
    • This classroom is a learning community
    • Important aspects:
      • A community means multiple people working together
      • The fundamental and common purpose is learning
        • even if you don’t want to be here, someone does, and their reason is your learning

    • The community is owned by all the participants in the community
    • Everyone here has equal right to feel comfortable
    • Everyone here deserves to be pushed to learn

      • To preserve the sanity of the teachers
  • New Procedures
    • Asking a question
      • You must ask AT LEAST two peers before asking the teacher
      • We’ll check – be clear in asking
    • Off task behavior
      • You have the authority to tell a peer to get back on task – or to knock it off.
  • New Procedures
    • Grades/assignments
      • Questions about grades must be submitted in writing
      • Put them on the desk up front
    • Feedback on writing
      • No feedback is promised unless handed in when asked for
