The Rules of Respect serve as models for all classroom rules.
Self-respect is demonstrated through:
o accepting challenges.
o completing assignments.
Group respect is demonstrated by:
o giving attention to speakers and being supportive of classmates.
o honoring your responsibilities as a group member.
o creating and maintaining a clean, safe, and positive environment for learning.
"The classroom must be recognized as a safe environment. Beyond physical safety, the mental and emotional well-being of students needs to be protected. School should be a safe place for taking risks and learning from mistakes."
