Class Promise – This idea of creating a promise as a class is a great way to set a standard for your students. It lets them know what is acceptable, makes everyone feel safe and creates an ideal learning environment.

This teacher explains how they recite it as a class and  you and students can hold each other accountable. Great idea too to post it where students see it regularly and it becomes a part of the class culture. {Free download}

Student Self Assessment – Building character often comes from reflection. Here is a tool that you can use for students to reflect on their own work habits and attitudes.

You could easily ask for them to grade themselves on any area that you are working on or discussing as a class and it of course works great for academics too. {wink}

I think that this is a great tool to help build character in students as they work to align what they see with what they… are even when no one is watching. {Free download}

Thanks to these teachers for their free downloads and quick tips.  Your ideas are sound and very helpful! Feel free to grab the “I’m a Featured Teach Junkie” blog button as your ideas are definitely worth the shout out.
