Classroom Principles

Setting up classroom principles and/or responsibilities at the beginning of each class session is a great idea. Get your student(s) involved in creating these. Bring a copy to class each day or provide a copy for students.

Here are some ideas, to get you started:

1. Mutual respect

2. Confidentiality

3. There are no dumb questions!

4. Everyone needs to participate

5. Only one person talks at a time; others have to listen.

6. We create a learning environment

7. Our differences provide us opportunities for discussion

8. Attending class is important – calling when you cannot come is also very important

9. Do homework and practice outside of class

10. Communicate with all participants
