Establishing rapport and developing relationships with students is the key to getting them hooked and engaged in learning. It’s all about making personal connections with your students from day one. Dave suggests the play-dough activity, an intriguing quote on the board and greeting the students daily in a unique way (pgs. 19-32).

  • Prompt 1: In this chapter, Burgess states that in his opinion and experience an engaged student is rarely a behavior problem. Would you agree? Share an experience.
  • Prompt 2: Think about the activities you do during the first week of school to get to know your students and to help them get to know each other.
  • Prompt 3: How you can get to know your students in a unique way during the first week of school.
  • Prompt 4: What did you find interesting about this chapter?
  • Prompt 5: Do you have a memory from K-12 or college that relates to this chapter?


Prompt 1: As we continue to reflect on our decision to teach like a pirate, we need to stop and ask ourselves the right questions. “The types of questions we ask ourselves determine the types of answers that we receive” (Burgess, 2012, p. 34).

  • What are some of the questions you ask yourself to ensure students feel welcome and safe every day they enter your classroom and the content is engaging and relevant?

Prompt 2: Burgess (2013) stated, ” For most of us, creative genius is developed through hard work, directed attention, and relentless engagement in the creative process” (p.34).

  • What process do you have to unlock or ignite your creative genius?

Prompt 3: Burgess says "The types of questions we ask ourselves determine the types of answers that we receive". How does this relate to Danielson and our reading related to 1F?
