Classroom Norms

Classroom norms are the behavioral expectations or rules of the class. Classroom norms inform us how we are expected to behave towards each other and towards the materials we use in school. Students who are partners in composing classroom norms are more likely to experience a level of ownership, participate and engage in mutually respectful and cooperative relationships.

 

The classroom norms in the middle-grades WINGS program for the 2012/2013 school year are as follows:

 

 

Classroom Norms:

  • Be safe

  • Be ready to learn
