Classroom Expectations

In this class, we spend the beginning of the year exploring our goals.  Students then analyze everyone's goals, with the intention of discovering what we need from ourselves and from others in order to achieve our goals.  These become our expectations for ourselves and for others.  Each year, students create their own expectations statement, and we spend time discussing what living up to these expectations looks like and sounds like in our classroom.  This year, our class expectations statements is...
