  13. 13. Inviting the student to learn.
  14. 14. The basis of being inviting is building relationships.Answers the question, “Will this teacher treat me fairly?”

  16. 16. Sort the following strips into two categories.• Invitational• Disinvitational
  17. 17. Students can refusewords, but they cannotrefuse an invitational attitude.
  18. 18. Four Levels of Invitational Education
  19. 19. Intentionally Disinviting These teachers deliberately demean,discourage, defeat, and dissuade students.And they never smile.
  20. 20. Unintentionally DisinvitingThese teachers are oblivious to thefact that they are negative people. They feel that they are well-meaning but are seen by others as chauvinistic, condescending, racist, sexist, patronizing, or thoughtless. And they keep their armsfolded when interacting with students.
  21. 21. Unintentionally Inviting These are the “natural-born teachers.” Such teachers are generally well-liked and effective. They are usually affable, and this characteristic often hides the fact that their students may not be learning to their fullest potential.These teachers are sincere, they tryvery hard, and we like to have them as friends. And they bubble with excitement.
  22. 22. Intentionally Inviting These teachers have a professional attitude, work diligently and consistently, and strive to be more effective. They have a sound philosophy of education and can analyze theprocess of student learning. They know what it means to be invitational, and they work at it. And they use the properemotion at the proper time.
  23. 23. • With your table, look at the charts we’ve created.• Which of these actions are intentional?• Which are unintentional?
  24. 24. Effective teachers know how toopen the door and invite their students to learn.
