Reflection: Shared Expectations Cosmically Cool Planet Research! Day Ten: Space Museum - Section 2: Set Expectations


It's important that we establish clear expectations for behaviors during our space museum.  Most students have the most "trouble" during unstructured times.  I have the students help me build our expectations together, so they feel invested.  I have found this better than if I just give them a list of rules.  Also, discussing the "why" behind an expectation leads students to understand and apply better behaviors.
