For the Students of the Read 180 Class: The Top Rules of Our Class Are: 1. Respect Each Other, Our Teacher and Our Classroom!2. Listen Carefully to the Teacher and to Each Other! Everyone will have a chance to speak. 3. Be Pro-Active and Productive! This class is for all the students currently enrolled in the Read 180 program! It is for YOUR BENEFIT, to improve reading and writing skills; to strengthen any weaknesses that we can help to overcome and continue you on the road to reading! My expectations of this class are: All students come prepared to listen and to learn. We listen to whole group instruction first, and then we can ask questions.We do not interrupt teacher during instruction and we do not interrupt others when they are speaking. Everyone in the class is equal and we treat each other as equals; therefore, there will be a chance for everyone to have a turn speaking. When it is time to move to our group stations, we move quickly and quietly. (This will be constantly practiced)When we have completed our full class, we line up at the door, quickly and quietly, in the order that I have given you today.Before dismissal, an exit question will be asked of each student. You are required to provide a thought, no answer is wrong, it is from your experience in class that day. If you are shy, that is ok! No one will be left out, but you will be required to participate in active discussion, we're all here to support each other.IF homework is assigned, it MUST be returned the next day.You are all awesome, there will be no one treated any differently than the other. If you are having a bad day, please leave anger at the door; we will treat each other peacefully. If you need to dispel some negative vibes, you need to come talk to me, upon entering class and we can figure out a way to deal with the situation positively. One final thing, NEVER hesistate to ask questions!! All questions are important!! It helps us all learn about each other and the world around us!
