  12. 12. Why do we have policies? A policy is a plan that guides our actions. To do things effectively, we have to adhere to some common sense policies: Governments invoke laws to help maintain peaceful communities. Companies have by-laws in order to facilitate productive work environments. Games have rules to create a baseline standard of play. »So, to be successful in learning, you need to follow some basic classroom rules! I call them my class policies.

  16. 16. Why Do We Have Procedures? A procedure is the way that we do things. To do things efficiently, we have to follow some simple procedures, for example: To open your locker, you have to select your combination as directed by the lock manufacturer. To cook a delicious meal, you need to follow the steps in the recipe. To place a call on your phone, you need to dial the number in the right order. »So, to be successful in learning, you need to follow some simple procedures!
