DURING TEACHER INSTRUCTION Listen to the teacher/speaker with full attention. No pencil sharpening, talking, moving about the classroom, or whispering. Stay seated. No talking to others even if you feel it is about the topic. Write down any questions you may have. After instruction, make sure you understand the concept. If not, ask questions by mentioning which part you didn’t understand. Do NOT ask to use the restroom.
DURING GROUP WORK Talk at a voice level that contains your voice to your group. Coaching and praising by group members is a requirement. Time limits are strictly enforced. Group work still requires individual accountability. During group work, you do not need to ask to sharpen pencil, use the restroom etc.
WHILE YOU ARE WORKING INDEPENDENTLY Make sure you read or listen to the directions about your work and understand the directions. If you didn’t understand, quietly ask for help from other students sitting around you. If you are asked to help, be polite and help. Talking to each other should be no louder than a whisper. Respect each other and be friendly. Use your time wisely. Put forth your best effort to finish your work on time.
