Launching units are designed to orient students to classroom expectations and procedures, and to energize them for the year ahead. They carefully model behavior, routines, and activities while allowing students to help create expectations and guidelines for themselves, which creates a classroom community that will strengthen learning environments for the remainder of the year.
