The runaway bestseller that's a must-have for every parent and teacher. How many authors would travel coast to coast on a bus to get their book into as many hands as possible? Not many. But that's just what Ron Clark, author of The Essential 55, did to keep his book and message in the public eye. And it worked. After his Oprah appearance, sales skyrocketed: we've sold more than , copies in six months!
For some reason, it hadn't occurred to me to teach good manner explicitly. I figured this was something that parents would teach their children at home.
Also, there's such a big push towards standards and test scores in my district that I didn't see how I could get away with teaching manners and common courtesies. But, after hearing Ron's passion and his students' gratitude for what he had taught them, I knew I had to give the concept a try. With Mr. Clark's book in hand and a determination to see solid improvement in how my students would treat me and their classmates in the coming school year, I set out to implement the program in my own way.
First of all, feel free to adapt the 55 rules to your own needs, preferences, and personality. I've adapted it to be "Mrs. Lewis' Essential After school started, I introduced the concept of my Essential 50 to my students.
The focus of the rules is on enriching pragmatic awareness, improving pragmatic skills and expecting basic etiquette. Not to mention his rules make sense.
The Essential 55 also focuses on providing clear cut expectations for a child. If you read my blog, you know I am BIG on providing expectations for children. He says it set the tone for the kind of respect he expects from his students.
When you make eye contact, you are attending to and acknowledging the speaker. From my perspective, eye contact is also important because without eye contact you miss many of the non-verbal cues that clarify messages. Again, it shows people you are listening and interested. This is a good foundation for developing good conversation skills.
However, we all need reminders to do this from time to time. Successfully reported this slideshow. We use your LinkedIn profile and activity data to personalize ads and to show you more relevant ads. You can change your ad preferences anytime. The Essential 55 Rules. Upcoming SlideShare.

We are a Family We are a family. We will treat each other with respect and kindness. These rules are guidelines for how to do so. They are not the only rules we will follow, they are the core. We ARE a family, a family only works if everyone does their part. Rule 1: Rule 2: Make Eye Contact Make eye contact.
When someone is speaking, keep your eyes on him or her at all times. If someone makes a comment, turn and face that person. Rule 3: Good Sportsmanship If someone in the class wins a game or does something well, we will congratulate that person.
Claps should be of at least 3 seconds in length with the full part of both hands meeting in a manner that will give the appropriate clap volume. Rule 4: Rule 5: Do Not Brag If you win or do well at something, do not brag.
If you lose, do not show anger.
Rule 6: Conversation When asked a question in conversation, you should ask a question in return. Yes, I had a great time. My family and I went shopping. What about you? Did you have a nice weekend? It is only polite to show others that you are just as interested in them as they are in you.
Rule 7: Coughing, Sneezing Burping When you cough, sneeze or burp, it is appropriate to turn your head away from others and cover your mouths with the full part of your hand or arm. Using a fist is not acceptable.
Rule 8: Smacking Your Lips Do not smack your lips, tsk, roll your eyes, or show disrespect with gestures. Rule 9: Say Thank You Always say thank you when I give you something. If you do not say it within three seconds after receiving the item, I will take it back. Rule Random Acts of Kindness Surprise others by performing random acts of kindness.
Go out of your way to do something surprisingly kind and generous for someone at least once a month. If I call on you to read, you must know exactly where we are and begin reading immediately. Answer all questions in complete sentences. How about yourself? Rewards At times throughout the year, I will give rewards for good behavior, academic performances, and other acts worthy of praise.
If you EVER ask me for a reward however, it will not be given. It is rude to ask if you are getting something for good behavior.
