This is basically what I do too. I work with severely emotionally disturbed
K-12. Of course, I have a basic idea what I would like the "rules" to be each
semester. However through "guided discovery", I encourage the students (all
grades) to develop their own rules. They usually come up with the same thing
as I do! However, because they spoke the words and it was THEIR idea, they
take ownership. Some years, I have use this as the first project. They team
up and make posters for our art room of THEIR rules!
Hey, if SED kids can do this, any kid can!!
