Classroom Community This class is our community during the time we are in it. Since it is ours, we will make it what we want it to be. It would be great to make it a positive learning experience.
To make this a positive learning experience ………… Actively participate Ask questions Give comments and opinions Listen attentively Cell phones, text messaging, computers Focus on the topic
To make this a positive learning experience ………… Appreciate other points of view Classroom civility; professional courtesy Verbally and non-verbally Respect others’ desire to learn No sidebar conversations Leave room quietly Cell phone etiquette
To make this a positive learning experience ………… Transfer what is learned Continually be asking yourself……. How can I apply what is being discussed in class to myself, my family, my customers? When what is being discussed doesn’t seem to apply to me, how might I use it in the future? Train yourself to transfer learning; practice for the future
