Advice on attitude in the classroom (Ronald R. Rodgers)

7 April 2019

I have found some notes on good behaviour surfing on the internet. I was having a look at some texts written by Ronald R. Rodgers Ph.D., Associate Professor in Journalism, University of Florida (USA) when I discovered these lines about classroom rules.


WRITTEN by R. R. Rodgers


“Spring 2017

Dr. Ronald R. Rodgers

Late assignments: No assignment can be late under any circumstances. Work turned in late will not be accepted unless you have a legitimate and documented excuse.

Common courtesy: For heaven’s sake, turn off your cell phone! Please also observe other rules of common courtesy, such as not speaking to your classmates (or yourself) when others are making a presentation, not falling asleep in class, not scrolling the Web, etc.

Be Good: And I have to say this as part of our contract: You need to conduct yourself in a courteous manner both in and out of class when it comes to dealing with fellow students or your instructor. That means any rude, obstructive or aggressive behavior will not be tolerated, and manifestations of same will mean your ouster from the class. I have a zero-tolerance policy on this.” (…)

asistencia a clase (6 puntos).-La asistencia a clase es obligatoria. Un alumno que falta a clase pierde lo más importante: la clase. El trabajo del profesor, su explicación y la práctica del alumno, la evaluación, las pruebas, las dudas, la interacción entre los alumnos y el profesor, la interacción entre los alumnos, los ejercicios realizados en clase, las tareas. Esto es lo que de verdad importa.

puntos positivos por asistir a clase activamente.-Cada día que un alumno asiste a clase, trae el material exigible en un centro educativo (libros, cuadernos, bolígrafo, lápiz, diccionario), se comporta de forma correcta y participa activamente recibe un punto positivo por asistencia. En caso contrario, el profesor no premiará su asistencia con un positivo. El total de puntos por este concepto suma 6 puntos por trimestre.

Un trimestre es evaluado de 0 a 100 puntos. En el apartado de ACTITUD se incluye la asistencia y las intervenciones del alumno en el aula


Reading a graded book on Robinson Crusoe aloud

(“To Sir, With Love”; Sidney Poitier.-  Director: James Clavell.-1967. In Spain “Rebelión en las aulas”)

I can´t say when he made the decision, who spoke to him or why he started to behave this way but he did. The boy didn´t use to speak English in class, what´s more, he used to talk a lot and show no good manners.

I heard him saying aloud “chapter 5, teacher!” or “what page?”. One feels better after these things.
