However, there is a great deal to be gained from taking this approach as can be seen from a brief look at some ways in which experienced teachers intuitively approach this. The question of classroom rules is covered in the companion book in this series on Class Management (Wragg 1993). Some teachers give rules to their new pupils, others adopt the idea of negotiating rules with their classes. There is often a debate among teachers as to the extent to which this is ‘genuine negotiation’ and to what extent it is a subtle way of imposing rules on children.

A student teacher who pursued the idea of ‘maintaining interest’ through the use of negotiated rules came up with an unusual approach. She made her set of rules, which were displayed in the classroom, the centre of continuing interest by asking pairs of children in turn, throughout the term, to collect and report examples of the rules being observed by the class. She made time to discuss the report with the authors before it became public and removed the specific instances of misbehaviour (there was a tendency at first to want to report wrong-doers), so that children could concentrate on the general matter of rule observation.
