They are divided into groups. You need to develop a work standard that you think you have in our classroom. For each standard created, create an image that should take them with you. (This encourages visual learners to participate.) Each person in the group will be at the turn of speaking out and explaining their standard. The members of the group will first listen, accept or contradict and explain their thoughts. At the end of time, the groups gather in the whole class and share their ideas. The best thing to do in the whole process is that after the lesson, you start to see how the work chord does its magic. Students take note of the screams and remind them that it is only one voice at a time. When I ask students why they are coming out, I often hear, “I have to concentrate.” The teaching agreement, which is on the wall of our room, reminds students of what we have agreed as a classroom so that we can all learn successfully. It is a good thing when students are taking care of their own learning. Here are our pre-line apprenticeship contracts, and I`ll ask you to consider a few questions below. At Learning Forward, we have a long history of developing, reviewing, modifying and using staff agreements to preserve the culture we value. Our agreements describe how we want to be treated and how we are expected to deal with others.
Our goal is to establish a culture of organization that respects the know-how and needs of individuals, while supporting a common goal. We aim for a work environment that people consider productive, stimulating, entertaining and responsible. While Learning Forward employees can choose other words to describe the environment, all employees engage in our staff agreements. They go to themselves and other agreements and, through semi-annual evaluations, deal with the agreements that are most difficult to them. While this lesson was a re-edition of the beginning of the school year and the expectations that already existed, the establishment of a working agreement is an excellent lesson in creating ways to promote a positive learning environment. As the work agreement forever adapts to space change, it is never a constant and can always be revised for your classroom needs. All the way to par. Many teachers write their learning needs and experiences to the people in their class. My starting point to explore this was Barbara Prashnig and her work. Here is the link to their article “10 False Beliefs about Learning.
