    • TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD
    • Objectives • Understand the importance of an safe, orderly and caring environment that builds true community in your classroom. • Understand the importance of focusing on students’ moral development as well as intellectual growth in order to prepare them to be caring citizens in our society today. • Create a safe, trusting, self-managing environment by building a sense of community within the classroom.
    • Guiding Questions • What is the ultimate aim of public education today? • What do our students need from their education, and what does our society need? • What does a classroom community look like? • What are your most frequent challenges with students?
    • “The popular response today is that students need more academic training, that the country needs more people with greater mathematical and scientific competence, that a more adequate academic preparation will save people from poverty, crime, and other evils of current society” ~Nel Noddings
    • 5 Ways to Build a Community of Caring Citizens in Your Classroom • • • • • Self Assessment of YOU Know and Notice all of your students Social Contract Accountability Redirection
    • Evaluate your own behavior 1. If everybody where I work was just like me, what would this place be like? 2. If my face froze in my most common expression, what would it be? 3. If as many people helped me today as I helped others, how much help would I get?“ 4. If today was videoed for my peers, what would be their criticisms? What would be their accolades? 5. If I became just like the two people I choose to be around the most at work - what would I become?" How are you "the change you wish to see in the world"? ~Mahatma Gandhi

    • EMPOWER YOUR STUDENTS How many of you get tired of your teachers nagging you and telling you what to do? If you help each other and I don’t have to get involved, there will be no consequences!
