Class Meetings Top of Page

Class meetings are used by students to: (1) resolve conflicts that take place during the day, (2) give students compliments, (3) plan class events, (4) develop a set of classroom rules, and (5) to help each other. Class meetings need to be held often enough to keep students familiar with the procedure. Meetings are an opportunity for students to reflect on various events, a chance to speak to the group, air their concerns and become involved in their own discipline program. With the teacher’s guidance, all attempts will be made to resolve conflicts while constantly being aware of the child’s self esteem.
