Course Description:
Research has consistently shown the significant benefits of having an established and clear routine in various aspects of life, including home, school, and work. Beyond enhancing efficiency, a structured routine fosters a sense of ease and comfort. According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, “familiar activities can provide comfort for both adults and children during challenging and uncertain times. Just like adults, children feel more confident and secure when their daily activities are predictable and familiar.”

As educators, it’s crucial to bear this in mind when shaping our classrooms and implementing systems that promote student success. This is particularly important for students with higher needs who thrive on consistency and clear expectations. English Language Learners (ELLs) often come from homes that may lack structure and possibly experience chaotic living situations. Coupled with the challenges of grasping content, language, or daily tasks, these students, in particular, benefit significantly from routines and established expectations. When they know exactly what to expect at the beginning of each class, they can enter the classroom with increased confidence, setting a positive tone for the entire lesson.


This course aims to explore the advantages of establishing clear routines and structures for students, with a specific focus on English Language Learners (ELLs). Participants will gain access to resources and practical ideas to effectively integrate routines and systems into their classrooms.
