Five Classroom Rules

You need JavaScript enabled to view it The following are five classroom rules that will make your life amazingly easier. One of them is nuclear power in your hands! If rules are only posted on your board they are not really a part of your class. Teach them as follows: In elementary school, rehearse the rules first thing in the morning, after lunch and after each recess. Rule Two will be the most commonly violated, duh. Every kid in your class should repeat rule two energetically with gestures.

Rule Five is nuclear power. If a student complains that they don’t know how to make you happy, tell them that following the first four rules will be just dandy. Rule Five has no loophole. If parents ask why their child should worry about making you happy, respond that you have the responsibility to teach their child and every other child in that class. Grants Alaska Regional Office.

The National Research Council's (NRC) Framework describes a vision of what it means to be proficient in science; it rests on a view of science as both a body of knowledge and an evidence-based, model and theory building enterprise that continually extends, refines, and revises knowledge.

Three Dimensions

It presents three dimensions that will be combined to form each standard: Dimension 1: Practices The practices describe behaviors that scientists engage in as they investigate and build models and theories about the natural world and the key set of engineering practices that engineers use as they design and build models and systems. The NRC uses the term practices instead of a term like “skills” to emphasize that engaging in scientific investigation requires not only skill but also knowledge that is specific to each practice.
