Les règles de vie de classe : vers un triptyque explicitation, justification, élaboration collective

Abstract : Classroom rules play a crucial role in school, as they are both a mean to create a supportive environement for learnings, and a specific learning item. Moreover, they can be used as a vehicle for a transversal citizenship education, by which pupils may not only respect, but understand and support the place and the functions of rules in collective life. In this regard, it seems that working on classroom rules requires to articulate three different dimensions : clarifying, justifying and co-formulating the rules. During my first year of teaching, I had to create different tools for learning the classroom rules. Most of them were used to solve specific pupils’ behaviour problems. I also initiated a more fundamental work regarding the way pupils understand and justify the rules they have to respect. Because of the material conditions of this teaching, I still believe this work was adequate but unsufficient : first because I had to solve specific behavioural problems which occupied most of the time devoted to the civic and moral education, second because I was not able to install learning situations where reflection and formulation on rules should have take place.
