Empower students, create buy-in, and build community with these two classroom essentials!

Class Description

Rules are a classroom management necessity. But what if we took it to the next level? Creating rules with your students increases student motivation and ownership while also fostering a sense of community.

And even better? Let’s add a classroom promise that is based on how students want to feel at school, and the actions they commit to making the classroom a happy and safe place to learn.

Professional Practice Goal

Lower elementary teachers (grades 1-3) will leave this quick 10 minute training with an understanding of what classroom community is, the distinction between classroom rules and a class promise, and examples of how to co-create both with their students.
