Class Expectations and the Power of Love

Anyone that has established "Classroom Rules" must realise that a room cannot have rules nor enforce them. A room is simply a physical space. Furthermore rules are a harsh and disciplinary method of class management.

Developing "Class Expectations" in collaboration with students is a much more meaningful way of establishing positive and harmonious classroom culture. Succinct expectations should be accompanied with graphics for clarification and openly displayed. "Class Expectations" remain relevant for student>teacher, teacher>student, student>parent, parent>student, teacher>parent, parent>teacher, parent>parent relationships.

An inclusive method develops common understanding of expectations and enhances interactions within the learning environment. It is fair to assume that I am an advocate of "Class Expectations" rather than "Classroom Rules". Teachers must not underestimate the power of love.
