Goal: Begin to work on ways that you can rethink classroom management in your daily practice as an educator and examine the classroom meeting model,share it with a colleague.
Quote: “What is equally striking to me is this … there isn’t a sense of a community solving problems together, rather there’s punishment for aberrant individuals.”~Alfie Kohn
Challenge: 1) Join The Teacher Mentoring Project on The EduPLN. 2) Support new teachers at Edutopia.org by responding to their questions and concerns. 3) Keep a list of ways you will begin to work on finding the best way to implement classroom management.
Some links to share The Classroom Meeting Model and Alfie Kohn.org
