It's the beginning of the Spring term. One definitely wants to establish clear expectations for all of the students. As I walked the halls seeing how each teacher launched into their topic, I noticed a bright, neon colored contract on each student's desk in one of the classrooms. Students understood what the teacher expected of them and the pupils also expressed what they expected of the teacher and the class.
