[Effective Teachers] Implementing Positive Expectations

Dear Effective Teachers,

Have you done the following?

  1. Prepared a positive statement of expectations for your classroom (example, “All Children Can Learn”)
  2. Created a classroom where the climate communicates positive expectations
  3. Participated in a professional development class
  4. Set a personal goal of high expectations (for yourself)

Take out your Teacher Control Journal:

  • Find a professional development classes online or offline — this applies to homeschoolers too
  • Set a personal goal
  • Think about what positive expectation you want to communicate.
  • Create a poster bearing your new expectation. Hang it up where it can be seen by all!

Up Next, insha’Allah Dressing for Success
