Reflection: Rules and Consequences Preparing for the Science Fair Presentation - Section 2: Explain


Before allowing the students to prepare for their presentations, we discuss the importance of being a good audience member.  In my classroom, being an audience member is a privilege and a responsibility.  The students are expected to respect their classmates when they are presenting.  If a student does something to cause another student to become flustered, such as laughing at them or making funny faces, points are taken off of the instigator's presentation grade.  Students may also be removed from the room if they become a distraction to the speakers.  I do this because I want the students to respect each other and because each student in my classroom has right to feel safe and respected.
