What is This Strategy About?
Different lesson activities require different behaviour expectations. Communicate exactly what is happening in the lesson and use this to state exactly what you expect of behaviour at different points of the lesson.
Why is it Important to have Behaviour Expectations for Students?
Good behaviour can help schools to run smoothly so that learning is effective. It also allows students to develop-character traits such as self-discipline and consideration of others which are important skills they will need to use for the rest of their lives.
