Student Court Update

Twice a week we hold a class court where students can raise any issues, concerns or suggestions. We debate the ideas and then vote on anything we want to change in our class. This is what we have come up with so far.

* Students must let others in to the class before and during school
* Students must wash their hands thoroughly after going to the toilet
* We will not have a roster for taking care of the chinchilla
* There will be one week this term with no homework
* Students will not touch other people's guitars in the back room
* Students will be responsible for tidying up their group's area at the end of the day so they don't have to wait behind after the bell for other people

Students are able to bring up any issue they have and we have all agreed to be kind to each other so we can make our class the best it can be.

This sounds like a great way to open debate in the classroom. How long do you debate for?
Has this helped with managing selves in the classroom?
