How can I make sure that the expectations I have of my students are being effectively conveyed early in the year as well as throughout the year?

When clear and consistent classroom expectations are set, students know what they need to do in order to be successful.  More time is spent learning then on correcting behavior.  Explicitly stating classroom expectations instead of assuming students already know them is an important first step.  Further, modeling your expectations, praising those who meet expectations, and letting students know how they are doing and how they can improve are other important steps.  Refer to our training module on effective classroom management at http://ctsp.tamu.edu/instructional-videos/effective-classroom-and-behavior-management-best-practices-for-cte-instruction/.
