Behavior is important in all aspects of life, and enables easy fit into society norms. Since behavior is so important, we should begin to put satisfactory behavior into practice at this age while we are studying in school, for example, in Science class. As much as we all like a relaxed environment in class, it is necessary that a clear distinction be made between "relaxed" and "out of control". For starters, students are expected to be on their best behavior during class time while the teacher is present. Behavior deals greatly with respect for others, for yourself, and for the teacher as well. Students are expected to be in the Science lab on time and to behave with decorum during the entire course of lecture. Students are expected to be paying attention to the teacher and not talking (to each other) or reading the book or paper. If we feel compelled to do either, we shall ask to be excused during class until we are ready to calm down and concentrate.

When we have questions about the lecture, we will feel free to ask it, being an opportunity to understand something that others aren't so clear about either.

Talking while the instructor or another student is speaking is inconsiderate and boorish behavior, which interferes with the rights of other students. It is within the instructor's authority to dismiss a student from class for talking for the remainder of the class period and we accept that. It is our responsibility to keep our mouths quiet when the teacher is lecturing and when class has begun, therefore we shall be willing to accept the mandatory consequences at this cost (writing this essay, for instance!). We hope to be in better behavior and treat the teacher and students with respect at all...
