## Reflection: Trust and Respect Constructing Viable Arguments - Section 1: Do Now

After students in each of my three classes finished the Do Now, I looked at their responses on the index cards. I compiled a list of their descriptions of respect and a list explaining how to show respect. We then used these lists as a social contract. I enlarged the paper to fit a poster and had each of my students sign the sheet.
