Rewards * ASSIGNMENTS OPT OUT: Student’s that obey rules and do not receive any disciplinary actions for 4 consecutive weeks will receive an opportunity to opt out of one homework assignment. * FIELD TRIP: Student’s that obey rules and do not receive any disciplinary actions for the entire semester will be allowed to participate in a semester ending field trip or activity chosen by the class as it relates to the coursework.

Record Keeping * LOG: Within the daily attendance log a space will be provided for any disciplinary events that took place during that particular day. All disciplinary actions will be recorded and taken note of.

The rules will me clearly communicated at the beginning of the year and I will be consistent in adhering to the consequences and model good behavior and expectations. The rules will be posted in the room as a reminder and we will practice the rules at the beginning of each semester and have a periodic review of them at different points along the way.

Theory: Unlike procedures or routines, rules express standards of behavior for which individual students need to take responsibility. Although they may help in insuring the practical efficiency of classroom tasks, they are really about encouraging students to be personally responsible for learning, as well
