These procedures are student focused so students learn that they play a vital role in the classroom and are also in charge of their education. In several instances, Burden (2010), refers to the importance of setting the tone of the classroom by the procedures in the first few days of school. These initial procedures are meant to have a long lasting effect on the classroom to make the learning experience phenomenal for everyone.
