“Classroom Management”

Went to the F&OD workshop on 7.28, led by W. Scott Lewis. Very engaging speaker, with no slides or handouts. Organized his talk well, research results alternating with anecdotes. A salient point for me was the idea of sharing a list of student rights and responsibilities at the beginning of the semester — not just a classroom code of conduct, but a complete list of the students’ obligations as well as the instructor’s.

Thinking of doing this as a discussion activity, beginning by asking students to write about a positive and a negative classroom experience and the reasons for each. Then read my list, then make suggestions for additions or modifications, which we can discuss.
