Prior to beginning work on this assignment read the IRIS Centers Establishing Classroom Norms & Expectations. Review the case study labeled “Level A Case 1” and the STAR sheets.
When you envision the ideal early childhood classroom, you see children working in groups, getting along, demonstrating problem solving skills and being totally engaged in the stellar lesson or activity you have created. However, we all know that classroom does not just “happen”. It takes a tremendous amount of effort and preparation on the teachers part for this harmony to exist. Teachers must let their students know their expectations. This is done by teaching the rules of the classroom. In addition to stating the rules and procedures, a teacher must respond to children’s actions both positive and negative in order to demonstrate their expectations. This way, appropriate expected classroom behavior can become the classroom norm, instead of the exception so that you can spend your time engaging with your students in the amazing, creative lessons you have created instead of dealing with negative behavior.
In this assignment, you will create your own expectations for appropriate classroom behavior and utilize a case study to practice creating strategies surrounding norms and expectations.
