Setting the Academic Tone in Your Classroom- on Purpose

What does your classroom say about the academic expectations you hold for your students? Today we examine three questions that will help you purposefully establish your academic tone. Let’s face it, whether you set your tone by design or default, you set one. This week I’ll help you get the tone right by design.

    Check out this example of setting an academic tone in your classroom. This great example comes from Britney Rogy from Cahlan Elementary in Nevada. Her cute pirate themed board lets students move their boats along the pirate path of the writing process.

    Check out Britney’s and share one of yours!

    Here’s another example of setting the academic tone- yes, even how we color is academic as it relates to quality of work.

    Thanks to Mrs. Wise from Blue Ridge Primary for this one.
