Culturally Responsive Teaching
I plan to be more aware of practices that I expect from children, i.e., "look at me when we are talking" and be more explicit about the reasons behind the rule "when you look at me, it let's me know you are listening." Or stepping even further out of my comfort zone and not enforcing the rule, but asking "when I am talking to you, how will I know that you are listening to me?"

Here is the Padlet Question for this week. Thank you for continuing to participate. It is really helping us make connections to each other.
