Early Release Brainstorming

To go with the visual that was provided below of the last time we met, here is the list we came up with:

Teachers Should
  • Learn each student’s name
  • Have a personal conversation with each student every six weeks
  • Learn at least one outside interest of each student
  • Tell other teachers about students’ success
  • Create a safe space
  • Avoid derogatory language
  • Give students specific praise about effort
  • Make positive phone calls home
  • Share their own interests/learning styles

Students should
  • Call each other by their given name
  • Call the teacher by their name
  • Feel comfortable asking questions
  • Honor the safe space
  • Avoid derogatory language
  • Not be afraid of wrong answers

**For our next early release meeting, we will be evaluating the items we brainstormed above for importance in the classroom as well as decide on a final product we will create. See you soon!**
