Through whole-class sharing, small-group work, one-on-one conferences, and every other way we respond to students all day every day, we need to give them the message that they are capable.“ Regie Routman, Teaching Essentials, pg. 29
  55. 55. Intentional Use of Language
  56. 56. The way that we, as adults talk to children affects the way that they view us, and the language that we use to describe their actions can really affect the way that they see themselves. Especially as teachers…the things that are said to a student can be interpreted differently through tone of voice…even one word difference can change the meaning of a whole sentence, therefore changing the way the student takes the statement. This can mean the difference between doubting themselves and their competence and setting low future goals, to, believing in themselves to choose challenging tasks and set high goals.

Normally admirable people. How do we relate to one another? Authoritarian control. Respectful with equal rights. Work out our problems. How do we relate to what we are studying?

Reflective Practice “Reflective teaching requires that teachers examine their values and beliefs about teaching and learning…This practice frees teachers from impulsive and routine activity and enables them to act in a more deliberate and intentional manner.
