Establishing Hallway Procedures
It’s one of the most basic school activities—and if executed correctly, it can help students and teachers save instructional time and maintain their focus on learning. Some simple hallway procedures can help a class more easily transition between locations.
There’s no single “correct” hallway procedure, but if the routine is going to be effective and enduring, it must be taught and reinforced just like any other knowledge and skill. A 30-minute lesson plan on hallway procedures is offered by Lewiston Public Schools in Lewiston, Maine.
