Mike Willmarth Posted about 2 years ago How do we get students to adopt specific classroom procedures without the use of negative consequences (punishment) or rewards? Lesley - In this instance my idea of a successful learner is someone who can learn the required material. I don't think I'm imposing a system of how to learn though I am imposing a minimum system of organization. By having their materials readily accessible, students will be in a position to choose their preferred method of study. They can use past tests as a tool for review, individually and/or with study teams; they can review sections of the textbook that tie into the practice work done at home and in class; they can use online resources tied to what we have been studying. Without access to what we have worked on it becomes much more difficult for students to identify the skills to study. Thank you for your response. These conversations are really helping me prepare for introducing and justifying my expectations to my students.
