Establishing Classroom Discussion Rules

Establish ground rules for class discussion with a constructivist approach. Your class will own the norms and be intrinsically motivated to employ them. Discuss the importance of establishing a safe and respectful learning environment. Class members collaborate to develop a protocol for class discussions. The purpose is to minimize negative and unproductive conflict and create an atmosphere where differing points of view can be respectfully considered. Plan to use this lesson at the start of the year to maximize potential.
