The Trouble with Tribbles

Whitt Discipline Update - August 31, 2015

Fabulous First Week!

Stallions, I am once again awe-struck. The first week at Whitt FAA went better than I could've hoped. I see lots of fantastic emphasis on CHAMPs both in classrooms and in the hallways. Remember - repetition ad nauseam. Keep up the reinforcement!

The "3 Rs" of Teacher Language

"Language—our words, tone of voice, and pacing— is one of the most powerful tools available to teachers. It permeates every aspect of teaching and learning. We cannot engage children in learning, welcome a student into the room, or handle a classroom conflict without using words. Students cannot do a science observation or a reading assignment without listening to and interpreting their teacher's words. And what they hear and interpret—the message they get from their teacher—has a huge impact on how they think and act, and ultimately how they learn."
