Multiliteracies in ELA Classrooms

Internet Safety

Creating a Class AUP

Many school boards recommend creating a classroom online agreement that uses school and district agreements as guidelines. Classroom agreements should be as specific as possible to the activities you hope to undertake and should be developed in consultation with students. As ever, consequences need to be clear and implementable. That is, if the consequence of inappropriate behaviour is withdrawal of access to an online learning space and students’ grades are based on activities to be undertaken in that space, then an alternate learning activity needs to be in place and students need to be clear about what the alternate activity will be when they are creating the classroom AUP.
