3 High Expectations The concept of high expectations is premised on the philosophical and pedagogical belief that a failure to hold all students to high expectations effectively denies them access to a high-quality education, since the educational achievement of students tends to rise or fall in direct relation to the expectations placed upon them.

4 Wisdom from “Olive to Run”
People who are told they are awful or incapable of doing something will eventually begin believing they are. Once you pigeon hole someone or even yourself it is extremely difficult to get out. Having high expectations often yields high results. Patterns and trends are contagious, but you have the choice to change the direction. Proving those who say you can’t wrong, is one of the best feelings in the world. Olive to Run is a teacher’s block that you might enjoy reading.

9 Teaching Expectations
CHAMPs classroom management system helps you provide instructional procedures in which your students become responsible, motivated, and highly engaged in the specific task at hand. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? I personally have used the system and it really does work amazingly well when used consistently. Ready to learn more?

10 Click here for a classroom example of a CHAMPS Chart.
C.H.A.M.P.S. (For All Ages) Use the CHAMPs acronym to define detailed behavioral expectations for EACH instructional approach that you use. Here is the CHAMPs acronym: Conversation Help Activity Movement Participation Success  Click here for a classroom example of a CHAMPS Chart.

11 Conversation Conversation: Can students converse during this activity? About what? With whom? For how long? There are lots of example charts online, such as this one. Zero Noise Level Spy Talk Low Flow Formal Normal Loud Crowd Out of Control

12 Help Help: How do students get your attention for help? How do students get questions answered? What should they do while they wait for you? You need to let them know for each type of activity.

13 Activity Activity: What is the expected end product of this activity? What is the task or objective? What is your goal?

14 Movement Movement: For what reasons can students get out of their seats during this activity? Do they need permission to do so? Remember, this changes for the type of activity, so be specific!

15 Participation Participation: What behavior shows that students are participating or not participating? You need to let your students know what this looks like for each type of activity.

16 Success Success: There are no questions for this one. When CHAMPs expectations are met, students will be successful. This is a great time to share a website called RubiStar though. Rubrics are another great way for teachers to be crystal clear about their expectations!
