(1) Rules with immediate consequences
(2) Rules with eventual consequences
(3) Rules with no consequences
Some may say that too many rules are not good for students. I have had many debates with people who think this way. I will have to respectfully disagree. The reality is that the world is full of rules. Some have formal consequences, some do not. We are babying students if we think that they will automatically be overwhelmed if they have more than five for ten rules. Students are better off getting used to dealing with them sooner than later.
I am going to be talking about each of the three kinds of rules in future blogs. Stay tuned!
