Classroom Management, Engagement, and Motivation Western Governors University Task 2 Part A1. Positive Social Interaction Someday I would like to run a second grade classroom. I think that Scenario 2 might work best with my students. The first thing I noticed was that the homework policy was announced and explained to the class, at the beginning of the year.
