Structure Creates Behavior
Welcome back to a very short December! A few things to remember as we get back to the books (or should I say "tech") for the remainder of 2014.
Reminder #1-- Take two minutes to briefly review classroom expectations and model behaviors you expect to observe from students. (You can never do this enough.)
Reminder #2-- Chat with your team members and review the team expectations so everyone continues to be consistent.
Reminder #3-- Find a moment in your day to purposefully connect with a couple of students who are struggling-- academically, socially, and/or emotionally. They look to you for a smile and affirmation.
Reminder #4-- DFTBA!
Have a great week!
