H. Wong's 7 Principles

Harry Wong talked about his "Secrets" to year long success based on what you do on day 1.

1. Am I in the right room?

2. Where am I suppose to sit?

3. What are the classroom rules?

4. What will I be doing in your classroom this year?

5. How will I be graded?

6. Who is my teacher as a person?

7. Will I be treated fairly in the classroom?

How well these questions are answered in planning prior to the 1st day is critical to success.
