What are appropriate classroom behaviors?

Depending on the culture we belong to, it varies, I think.  In our culture, students are required to sit quietly and listen attentively to their teachers.  Asking questions during the class is not required so much.  They usually come to see their teachers to ask the questions that they didn't understand.  It's embarrassing to ask during the class so students are expected to sit quietly by taking memos in the notebooks.  So when I went to America and saw the students raise their hands a lot and express their opinions, I was amazed.  We are the same human beings but the way we think is right is very different, which fascinated me.


Coming to class and being prepared to learn.

Remaining seated at all times unless instructed otherwise, or given permission to leave seat.

Following all directions given by the teacher.

Staying focused on the lesson and tasks assigned.

Taking notes on teachers lessons.

Participating in the class.

Treating the teacher and fellow students with respect.

Staying awake and alert (no putting head on desk to sleep).


As a teacher, I want students to sit attentively, to listen carefully, to ask questions, and to follow directions. These behaviors work in classrooms from kindergarten to graduate school. It helps to be polite, friendly, and prepared, too.
