I learned very quickly the importance of setting clear expectations for behavior and academic work at the beginning of class. Writing the expectations in student friendly language, reviewing them, stating the consequences, and praising students who do and reprimanding those who do not meet the expectations are things that I did to ensure the class ran smoothly. The artifact above is the expectations that I set each time students participated in the reciprocal teaching sessions. Because the reciprocal teaching sessions were largely student-run, it was really important that students remain focused on the academic task and participated in the session to make it run smoothly. The expectations were posted, and I often referred to them throughout the class period.
