My class rules will be pretty simple, but as a class we will discuss what each means and why it is valuable to the students. Respect will be for themselves, their peers and the classroom space/materials. Responsibility will include coming to class on time and prepared as well as being responsible of their actions, words and work. In the art classroom I want to stress that students need to try different and creative ways of processing information and making art, this includes respect for others work and creativity. I included openness because students may not like a project, process, idea or discussion and I want to challenge my students to try new things, think differently and respectfully express opinions.
