In my opinion, the classroom's rules and the rewards and positive recognition for obeying them are the the most important things to improve. Only three rules are listed, and they do not explain all that is important in a classroom. These rules should also have explanations attached to them. Students are less likely to “fool around” if the teacher explains to them exactly what they mean my “fooling around.” I think that the rules prohibiting unnecessary talking and the one that reads “talk among students - students will be permitted to talk to one another during individual seatwork time. Students may work with a partner, as long as they stay on task and do not get too loud” are contradictory. A teacher cannot tell their students “no talking,” but also tell them that talking is ok as long as it is not very loud. This will make the students confused, and if they are confused about rules they will think that they do not matter, and will not obey any of them. To make these rules more efficient, they should include rules like these: 1) Respect other people's belongings and your own 2) Do not talk while the teacher is talking 3) Do not shout 4) Do not touch other people 5) Obey the “Golden Rule” and treat other students as you would like to be treated.
The section about rewards and positive recognition also needs to be updated. A teacher should always smile at their students. Even if the student does not do well on an assignment, the teacher should encourage them to do better next time with a smile. Giving the class positive points at every time during their grading period when they do good things, like keeping quiet when they are supposed to, coming in on time, or finishing their homework, is a good way to give all of the students rewards and positive recognition. When the grading period is over, the class can trade their points in for rewards like recess or a pizza party. I would also give each of the students an individual reward. When they do not break any rules and have good behavior, I would give them “play money.” They can use this play money to buy themselves prizes like fancy stationary sets.
