Unfortunately, too many teachers are obsessed with laying down the law on the first day of school!In this episode, I’ll inspire you to shelve the word “rules” and christen the word “procedure”. I’ll also promote the engagement potential of “Opening Night”…the first day of school. The heart of this episode, however, is the concept of introducing class procedures through student improvs! Give a listen and then change the way you look at the first day of school!
