Creating Classroom Communities: A Real-Life Experience for Elementary Students

Institution

Murray State University

Abstract

This abstract is an example of a classroom management project developed during my student teaching experience. The project was created and implemented to allow me, the teacher, more instructional time while decreasing time spent on everyday classroom tasks. It allows students to take on classroom responsibilities while experiencing the real-life workings in a community setting. This was introduced and implemented in a third grade classroom but could be easily adapted for any age group. The students receive the opportunity to serve on a city council, police their peers, and handle classroom tasks such as bathroom monitoring and maintaining classroom computers. The project worked wonders on a third grade class that was experiencing multiple behavior problems. The classroom community idea also implemented and addressed several areas of Kentucky's Core Content for Assessment and Academic Expectations.
