Reflection: Shared Expectations First Day of School - Section 1: Warm Up

 

Students were ready to dive into the math today on the first day, and so was I.  However, I know the importance of setting up a culture of trust and respect early in the year.  I have high expectations for my students, as well as empathy for their needs.  I wanted to take the first day to convey that message to my students, and for them to convey their thoughts and expectations about the class as well.  I think that this will result in better classroom management throughout the year, less discipline problems, and allow both facilitator and learner to focus on the math at hand.
