Each different classroom has different rules and behavior settings in their classrooms. The atmosphere of the classroom has a lot to do with student behavior. The setting of the classroom should be appealing to the teacher and in some cases the students. All teachers should let students know specific do’s and don’ts of the classroom. Which behaviors are expected or desired and which will not be tolerated in the class, Ms. Colombara? s rules are fair and respectful to the class.
They insist of no food and drinks in the classroom but sometimes the teacher bends the rules and lets students quickly munch down an orange or a small granola bar. During the classroom break stay in the class and under no circumstances leave the classroom without your student handbook with you. Absolutely no uses of swear words in the classroom but some are used when the class is doing readings from novels. Treat any teachers on call the same respect, as you would treat a regular staff at Sullivan Heights Secondary. One of the rules Ms.
Colombara likes to knag at kids is to not to eat or drink in the classroom. Nobody blames her because there could be some spills or crumbs on the ground and no teacher likes to go as a janitor at the end of the class and pick up junk left by the students in the classroom. The teacher also doesn? t like gum or any type of candy because sometime kids leave the gum underneath the desk and that is horrific and gross. Also some students like to put the gum on the ground and when a fellow student walks with over it, it sticks underneath their shoe and it?
s a pain to clean up. She will only allow water only if it? s in a sealed bottle like a water bottle or a Gatorade® bottle, something that has a lid on it so if it does get bumped off the desk nothing will spill. Another rule Ms. Colombara has that no foul language or any other inappropriate behavior in the classroom. No foul language should be used against another member of the class. If students do this they will earn them automatic participation in ? Friday? s after school writing challenge session as well.?
If the usage of foul language is very harsh and disturbing the student could be sent to the office with a referral and a call home to the parents. Also teach T. O. C. with the same respect you would too any other teacher. It? s not fair for a T. O. C to come to a school and being harassed or taken advantage by the students. During the weekly double block in Sullivan Heights Secondary, there is a short ten-minute break that the teacher allows students to get a breath of fresh air or just stretch and walk around.
While the ten-minute break is in process, students are than usually allowed to go to the restroom and go for a drink if needed. At no times during the break and regular time is a student permitted to leave the class without signing the student handbook by the teacher. No student is able to wander the school premises. If a student decides to leave when the have a T. O. C. than the student will be punished and have to write a 500 word essay on Appropriate Classroom Behaviors.
If the student keeps on leaving class without handbook there could be a possibility of losing his/her break period. In conclusion, Ms. Colombara? s rules are fair and are perfect for the classroom. She allows no food or drinks in the classroom. Respect fellow classmates, the teacher, and yourself by listening to any body that? s speaking at the time. Make sure that you never ever take advantage of T. O. C. or any teachers at the school. Ms. Colombara? s rules are great and if you don? t obey them you will be dealt with serious consequences.
