If anyone in this room is opposed to the creation of these norms, speak now or forever hold your piece. Remember the opening Quote.

Group Work-

Let’s assume from time to time some people might break our agreed upon norms. How will we deal with these students?

Create a scenario for each of the following situations:

  1. A student or teacher has there cell phone out.
  2. A student or teacher has food or drink on their desk that is not water.
  3. A student or teacher is acting disrespectfully or threateningly. Does sarcasm count?
  4. A student or teacher is making a mess. What about sunflower seeds? What about ripping up a note?
  5. A student or teacher is giving up on class.
  6. A student or teacher is out of uniform
  7. Group pick
  8. Group pick

    As a student of the classroom I feel as if one mic is of importance because everyone has ideas and should be allowed to express them.

    Situation: Student has cellphone out
    If a student is using his or her cellphone in class I will talk to him o her and tell them that they have to put it away. But if the student don’t want to put it away I will take another decision and I would say if you don’t put it away I’m Going to have to take it off. But if the situation Get complicated I would send him o her to the office so they can call at there house and try to Fix everything.

    My families safety they’ve always given it their greatest efforts to keep me protected from all the negativity that is produced in my environment, I just want to return the favor.My education, there will be very few things that will prevent me from obtaining an education. My education will support my success and extent to which I take my career. School may seem like a waste of time but in reality to be successful work has to be put in. “Many want to be great but nobody wants to put the work in.”My friends out of all the people I have ever meet at this moment I only consider 3 of them my friends. These people have displayed honesty and loyalty a numerous amount of times making them that much more important. Apartment 26 also known as my home, some are born with more than they could ever imagine, others have to suffer and work hard for the simplest thing. The amount of gratitude I have for the ceiling that has been over my head for 15 years is unimaginable. Police abuse is unacceptable, coming from a minority family I despise the fact that a badge gives another a man authority over another person. Power is the demise of humanity. Officers assaulting an innocent man and then claim he was harmful as a cover story is absurd. The fact that cops are able to choose who is innocent and dangerous is horrendous.


    I have a strong belief in expressing myself. I have a strong belief in religion.I have a strong belief in soccer. I have a strong belief at my parent. i have strong belief in stars.


    I have a strong belief in expressing myself. I have a strong belief in religion.I have a strong belief in soccer. I have a strong belief at my parent. i have strong belief in stars.i have strong belief to fight for those who can’t fight for themselves.
