Creating a writing community


A community works best if all members agree on the rules, regulations and policies that will govern the proceedings in which all participate.  To this end, you were asked to think critically about the most equitable practices to introduce into our class to ensure that things run in an orderly yet engaging manner.

Please transcribe the rules you have composed to a word processing document..  Then save the document to your Google drive.  Copy and paste the content of our document here.  We will then read each others’ suggestions, and decide upon a constitution of sorts for our class.

Thank you.

    *When the teacher is talking no one else should be talking.
    *When the teacher is assigning work then we should all be doing it not socializing.
    *Everyone should always be doing something in the class not just sitting around.

    A routine we can have every day is to walk in and greet everyone and sit down quietly and do our do now or free write. Also, having some time to listen to music on the SmartBoard while working. It would be nice to incorporate mini quizzes to make sure we all understand. We can be interactive and do hands on games and lessons so we can become more engaged. Taking time out to discuss our thoughts and opinions to our classmates.

  7. Adaeyja says:

    I agree with Amari Johnson & Victor Martinez. I believe we should listen to music while working and sit quietly greet everyone when we walk in.

  8. Victor says:

    Nyraeona- I agree with you rules. They were similar to mine.
    Karibo, Kenneth, and Adaeyja- I agree with you rule that says to listen to each other respectfully, i forgot to add that to mine own rules.

  9. Amari Johnson says:

    i agree with Victor Martinez when it comes to sitting quietly until the teacher gives directions. I also agree with Adaeyja when she says stay on topic and share out at the end. This is to make sure we get through what we need to.

    *Be on time *Respect the teacher *Raise ur hand

  11. Abigail Thomas says:

    I agree with Amari Johnson because her idea will help to keep everyone on track. Before class starts everyone should be prepared and ready to start before Mrs. Dudley says it’s time to do our free write. The quiz will help us make sure we always understand what we are doing in class .

  12. Kenneth Palmer says:

    I agree with Adaeyja Chambers and Amari Johnsons routines and rituals for this class

  13. Amari Johnson: I agree with having sometime to listen to music while we are working.

  14. Adaeyja: i also agree with waiting until the end to discuss your off topic questions.
