|dc.description||It became quite evident to me during the course of my internship
that an educator needs a firm set of classroom policies and
guidelines. These policies are the basis of fair classroom control,
setting the limits of proper classroom conduct. They
become the imaginary line over which no student should be allowed
In my own experience at Forest Hills Northern High School
(hereafter FHN) I was found wanting just such a set of classroom
policies. More specifically, wanting a set of my own policies.
In trying to administer my critic teacher's policies, (each had
his own, one written out and posted, the others implicit) I
found that I did not always agree with the severity of punishment
called for. My hesitation in applying punishment was ,;.at
times, evident to my classes. I sometimes found myself in situations
in which no rule applied (to the best of my knowledge).
This left me to formulate rules as occasions arose. This
procedure was not fair to all students, especially those which
had fallen out of my favor on that particular day (it does happen).
My goal in writing such a policy statement is to explicitly
state the behavior which is expected of every student in my class.
It will cover classroom conduct, work habits and will include a
grading scale. It will also state what my response will be to
any unnecessary actions on the students part. The fact that it
will be my response is important. These are policies which I
have thought out and feel comfortable with. I will not hesitate
to administer them in a classroom.||en_US
|dc.description.abstract||My internship at Forest Hills Northern High School in Grand
Rapids, Michigan was a rewarding and valuable experience. I was
aided and guided through the term by my critic teachers, Mr.
Bernard Van Ark, and Mr. Andrew Seif. My supervisor, Mr. Edward
Hoezee, was especially helpful in my growth as a teacher. He
pointed out both my faults and my strengths. His experience,
understanding and support made my experience a very profitable
one. This paper is undoubtedly influenced heavily by these three
men and the";policies each administers in his classroom.||en_US
