Choose a class you teach or one you hope to teach in the future and describe your classroom management plan. Because a classroom management plan refers to the things that a teacher does to organize students’ time, space, and materials so that instruction and student learning can effectively take place, your plan should discuss these factors and demonstrate your ability to create a climate conducive to learning. Your plan should also establish high expectations for student behavior and learning. At a minimum, your plan should do the following:
Explain the goal of the plan, including the grade level(s) it addresses. Generate a set of rules and expectations. Examine and explain the role students have in the classroom. Examine and explain the role you play in the classroom. Create an implementation plan (how this plan will be implemented in the classroom). Construct a visual representation of the physical arrangement of the classroom.
Your plan should be between three and five pages, in addition to a title and reference page, and be divided into sections clearly delineating what is being addressed. The items outlined above should serve as a starting point for your sections. Other sections of your choosing may be added. Given that we are teaching and learning in an increasingly connected digital society, you will also need to review the ISTE Standards for Teachers and identify at least two aspects of the standards you will address in creating an effective learning environment. Please use APA format to cite and reference at least three scholarly sources, including the course textbook, in this assignment.
Preparation for Week Three Assignment: Remember, your Week Three assignment requires you to visit and/or interview two teachers, principals, or teaching support staff members. By now you should have either conducted your observations and interviews or have plans to do so.

Goal of Plan and Grade Level
Instructor’s notes are in red. Delete everything in red. Introduce your project here to explain the goal of the plan, including the grade level(s) it addresses, and generate a comprehensive set of rules and expectations. Do not forget a clear thesis statement at the end of this introductory paragraph!
Classroom Rules and Expectations
Clarify classroom rules here, but make sure that if you use the rules that belong to another source that you properly cite that source in APA style.
Students’ Role in the Classroom
Tell us about the role of the main stakeholder: your students! What do you expect from them? What do you hope they will learn from you?
My Role in the Classroom
This is where you will tie in your teaching philosophy that you wrote for Week 1 by sharing what you hope to achieve as a teacher.
An Implementation Plan
Explain how you will implement your plan in the classroom to successfully meet the needs of your students, establish manageable perimeters, and promote academic achievement.
Visual Representation of the Physical Arrangement of the Classroom
You can draw and scan your classroom design here. You can use Microsoft word tools to draw something right here, or you can use any tool that you are familiar with in constructing a clear visual representation of the physical arrangement of the classroom. This is not something you describe, but something you create visually.
Identifies at Least Two Aspects of the NETS-T Standards That Will Be Addressed
Identify two aspects of the NETS standards and how you will address these standards in your classroom. Again, if you are not yet a teacher, explain how you hope to address these standards.
