Reflection: Routines and Procedures This is how we do it - Section 5: Lesson Close


Classroom Procedures are an integral part of effective classroom management. Each year, I review the prior year's procedures presentation and always end up making changes because I learn during the year how much more explicitly I need to communicate my expectations around student behavior and movement in the classroom. Each teacher has to decide how much information s(he) wants to include in the classroom procedures but I have found that it serves both me and my students well when I consider as many aspects of movement and behavior as possible right at the beginning. Knowledge is power and I like to say “you do better when you know better.”  By providing my students clear expectations of behavior and movement up front, I alleviate distractive behaviors like students getting up from their seat 12 times to throw away paper.

My policies and procedures presentation consists of those necessary behaviors that I expect to see consistently throughout the year. The sole intent of this lesson is to give explicit instruction about classroom procedures for both movement and behaviors so that we can quickly establish a high performance learning environment.  For example, I have procedures on how to enter, how to exit, leaving your seat, how to respond to a visitor at the door, what actions to take if the grade is not a passing grade, participation, etc.
