Abstract: Micro-rituals/interpersonal rituals have become, for years, the subject of communication sciences. Classroom life (an example of interpersonal ritual) can be included among social interactions that take place in everyday ritualistic space. The ritual that takes place in the classroom can be viewed as performance, action and communicative form. Performances (Goffman: 1973; 1974) in the classroom, within the limits and under the form of small ceremonies (ritual situations), are those in which teachers and students involved in social interactions manifest their presence through ritualized behaviour closely connected to models and habits offered by members of the same community.
