I Clearly establish expectations for my learner
What are the expectations of the learner?
of the teacher? and of those close to the learner
(classmates, department, school, family)
I Keep and follow a consistent set of rules
I make sure to write them down; post them; refer to them!
Rules are necessary, but must be mutually agreed upon with the learner.
They must be fair and enforced consistently. Rules cut down on unnecessary struggles.
Know the learner
I discover their strengths and challenges in learning.
Under what circumstances does he or she learn best? poorly?
