Help your students by helping them create a container that appreciates who they are and gives them the opportunity to be themselves. When you create a classroom container that consistently returns to your community agreements, healthy learning relationships are fostered that foster respectful and caring bonds. You can also use group chords for group work. Allow each time group to develop its own cooperation agreements. This can help relieve the stress of ambiguous expectations of group work, help students engage for themselves and resolve conflicts together. I think class agreements are acceptable to the self-motivated learner, but they are a challenge for those who are not. Community agreements can also indicate what to do if someone does not behave accordingly. The answer should be restraceative and not punishable. If your class has made the agreements, write them down and post them so they can be displayed by everyone.
Finally, remember that community agreements are fluid and can be completed if necessary. 3. Creating Community Agreements: The creation of community agreements supports a container by giving everyone the opportunity to share what they need to feel safe in the classroom. Community agreements differ from the rules because students are involved in their creation and students agree, rather than telling students what not to do. This supports buy-in, lets students know what each of them can do to support the class, and helps students feel seen and heard. Sometimes participants do not respect the community agreements they put in place for themselves and for others. If this happens, it facilitates everyone`s consent to a particular behaviour. As a training manager or course facilitator, you can report disrespect and ask the class together how they plan to do it. Or you can refer to the agreement and ask the person to change their behaviour so that it is consistent with the agreements. Both are useful, and what you do depends on the time you have and the ubiquity of the problem.
The more you can democratize implementation, the more buy-ins you will likely have, so remember that this is an exercise in establishing a common responsibility rather than exensing your authority. Teachers always agree to set standards in a classroom. Teaching students to be self-discipline and to learn respect is to become a science student. Having class contracts can make a class extremely large. Class agreements can lead everyone to act and think like their instructor. The ten pathways you have created for Ms. Sackson are very important for an educational process. You mentioned that you need to spend time before you consolidate your beliefs about learning. It was very important for someone who takes his time before rushing to do his job. I`m new to the application and the PYP.
I am only 4 years old. But I see too many teachers (maybe even myself!) who give words in the air to the idea of the agreement, the idea that students are actively involved in the construction of such agreements. If we creatively creativity our students to find the chords that our class must have. It is difficult for us to let go of control and guide students to their promises, not ours. Sometimes I feel the same way on the exam. Yes, the survey is often structured and must be structured, but do we “make” requests about what students are interested in, or do we simply find less obvious ways to get them to where we have already decided they should be? These two subjects were hard in mind when the school year starts where I am… There are a number of calls that you can ask to help students develop agreements.
