IMLEA Monday Minute
#CelebrateMonday: Highlights from #IMLEA17-- and more
One of the sessions, led by Professor Steve Gruenert from Indiana State, included his story of the way Sean Gaillard helped start a positive trend. During a snow day, Gaillard (@smgaillard) was reading School Culture Rewired: How to Define, Assess and Transform It In the book Gruenert and co-author Todd Whitaker (IMLEA keynote speaker) threw out the idea: what if, instead of conveying the idea to students that we should celebrate Fridays (in anticipation of not having to come to school) we accentuated positive things happening on Monday? The result: the hashtag #CelebrateMonday regularly trends on Mondays, but, more importantly, educators are demonstrating that they want to be at school, welcome students, and are sharing great things going on. Today was no exception; feel free to check out today's #CelebrateMonday Some of our conference attendees spent some time planning how they are going to be a part of this in the future.
