Respect and Responsibility

The activity has them leaving the classroom and requires the students to work independently from the teacher. In order to make this a positive experience it is important to lay down clear expectations. In the first few days of school we cover respect and responsibility as being expectations. I remind my class that the expectations I have for them is that they can have fun while learning. Respect is following directions, being polite, and in this case being mindful of others in the building who are working. For example, they will visit a part of the school where others might be, they need to not distract and be good observers. I ask them how they can demonstrate responsibility and I add to their ideas on how it pertains to this lesson. After each expectation is given I always give the opposite example of what is NOT expected. It helps make the message more clear and gives them a model of what not to do.
