Tuesday, October 6, 2015 at 8 p.m. our #allinchat will be addressing ways that we can all learn to build trust among those who are traumatized or abused. You may think that you know who those students are, but honestly many of our students have witnessed or been the victim of trauma. These scars are slow to heal, and you may suddenly find yourself with a disengaged or angry student that you have accidently triggered.
I have decided to post our #allinchat questions here for those who may be interested to see them in advance (with the hope of additional participants). Each of these questions has been drawn from the article from Education Leadership entitled "How Not To Be a Mountain Troll" by Jeffrey Benson.
Here are our #allinchat questions
Q1: Trust comes before learning, so how can we ensure we are building relationships before rushing into academics? Strategies? #allinchat
Q2: Every student needs recognition. How can we be sure we connect with each and every student?#allmeansall #allinchat
Q3: How can we ensure that one adult will have a "significant conversation" with each student at least once a week? #allinchat
Q4: How do you use extra "think time" in class or rephrase questions to include all Ss? Ex: What Q's do you have? #allinchat
Q5: Rules are important,so how can you minimize the absolutes and individualize your approach with students so they feel safe? #allinchat
Q6: "First do no harm." Give an example of a time when no action is better than an overreaction. #allinchat
I look forward to you joining us on Tuesday, October 6th at 8:00.
