It’s hard to know sometimes what is expected of you in different classrooms. CHAMPS will help you to know what’s expected of you for the different activities in this class.
C – Conversation– When may you talk? How loud may you talk? What may talk about? Who may you talk to? See Volume Levels.
H – Help– How do you get help from Ms. Renée? Can you get help from a classmate?
A – Activity– What exactly are we doing? Is this a teacher-lead lesson, independent seat work, group work, assessment, or presentation?
M – Movement– Do you have to stay in your seat? Are you assigned to work in a different location?
P – Participation– What does active and effective participation look like? What are you expected to do?
S – Success– What do you need to do to succeed?
Following CHAMPS guidelines for the different class activities will help you earn positive student skills/citizen points for your grades, show you are taking responsibility for your learning, and show you are promoting learning for others.
