Objective: To use simple courtesies with all students and adults at my school.
Student Awareness: “I am respected at this school.”
Do: Courteous words (please, thank you, excuse me) body language, eye contact, greeting students at the door, calling them by their names.
Watch out for: Sarcastic tone, insults, interrupting
How you treat people in the first 10 seconds will determine how well your day goes and will influence how their day goes.
What does your greeting say about you? (Voice, body language, words)
Affirmation and Correction*Objective: Students will receive feedback about their performance. *Student awareness: “I am going to be told promptly whether or not my work is acceptable.”*How do you respond when a student gives a wrong answer?
“Listening is such a simple act. It requires us to be present and that takes practice, but we don’t have to do anything else. We don’t have to advise or coach or sound wise. We just have to be willing to sit there and be present.” Margret Wheatly
(snowball flurry strategy)
“Each time we steal a student’s struggle, we steal the opportunity for them to build self-confidence. They must learn to do hard things to feel good about themselves. Self-confidence comes from being successful at something we perceive as difficult.”
“No significant learning takes place without a significant relationship.”
Dr. James Comer
