      • Individualizing the Classroom: Creating Individualized Plans for all students through projects and classroom management
      • Christel Kaufman
      • Western Regional Director
      • NAF
      Welcome 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow
      • Background
      • My essential question:
      • How do I get all kids to be engaged and
      • motivated to learn?
      As a Teacher 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow
      • “ Teachers and administrators constantly lament that students are not motivated, but what they are actually saying is that they do not know how to persuade students to work……. All of our motivation comes from within ourselves.”
      • William Glasser, The Quality School
      Motivation 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow
      • What do you believe?
      Beliefs 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow
      • When leadership is shared or distributed in the classroom community, student performance improves.
      • If a student has an issue, concern or problem, having teachers that maintain an open door policy, whom they know will listen to them, problem solve with them, and be advocates creates an atmosphere of caring and results in increased work satisfaction.
      • If a student is struggling with the best way to complete a task, input from others is often welcome and critical
      • When others evaluate student work, and they know ahead of time this will be happening, it often ups the anti for excellence.
      Student Centered 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow
      • Course information sheet should make kids accountable
      • Examples:
      • If you are absent, it is your responsibility to speak with me directly and get your work or go to the web site.
      • All students will be expected to present, evaluate, be evaluated by instructor and students, and participate. You must do all of these things to pass.
      • If you do not show up for class, a student may call you during class to find out why you are not there.
      Day 1 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow
      • Consider a Grading clause if possible and you agree with (not a NAF thing):
      • There is no letter grade given below a C in this class. If a student does not receive a passing grade of a C, there will be no letter grade given, instead a no pass will be recorded and they will have to repeat the course . A grade of C or better is fully expected.
      Examples 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow
      • This is a teaching and learning community!
      • Open and interactive process in most of what you do creates a sense of community.
      • Classroom Rules and Expectations
      • You are part of this community, do participate
      Building Community 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow
      • In your toolbox, write down your expectations of what students will leave your classroom with at semesters end.
      • Pop share
      Toolbox 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow
      • When building community:
      • What are the perks you can offer to seniors in your academy?

      Teacher Commitments 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow
      • Reflect on your life experiences that have brought you to the place you are today. Create a visual “map” of your journey
      • Share and put on walls
      • Where did I come from?
          • Significant event, people and situations that have shaped you

          • Describe yourself today
      • Where am I going?
          • What do I need to know to get there?
          • How do I learn best?
      The Journey Map 2009 Institute for Staff Development Students Today, Leaders Tomorrow
      • Q: It sounds like you want schools to fill the role of social services.
      • A: No. Schools cannot be all things to all people; however, we can do better. We have to remember the consequences of indifference to the personal needs and aspirations of students. Remember the effect suicide can have? Not only is a family devastated, but so too are many of the parents and students in the school community. Emotionally and academically, everything is put on hold for more than a week. That’s an extreme example, but similar tragedies happen more often than we’d like. Let’s not forget the less cataclysmic events, the behavioral and discipline issues associated with students not engaged ---those clearly affect all students. Every student will be better off if we can reach each student
