Reflection: Classroom Setup Selecting Tools for Addition - Section 1: Introduction & Expectations


I believe that students will meet the expectation that you set and model for them. I show students examples of high quality work and I expect them to strive for that level of work on all tasks. I think it is important to create areas inside and outside of the classroom so that excellent student work can be displayed. When students clearly know the expectations and there is a model of what it should look like, they strive to meet the challenge. I always find ways to display student work so that they can see that what they produce should be something they should be proud of.
