It is great to see such wonderful work being done here! My experience working in a school as a social worker allowed me to see exactly what you are talking about!
From the "testing" one can really see where the students' needs really come through.
I especially enjoyed watching these video responses from the students. Looks like you have a great bunch!
I can relate to your comments above. Growing up in a family full of teachers, I was constantly reminded to "be real" with my students. At the time, I did not know what that meant. Today, I certainly do!
It is such a joy to see this being suggested. Keeping an open line of communication will no-doubt provide a safe way for students to begin trusting teachers. This is especially so in students who may have particular difficulties in their academics. Consistency in discipline and setting high student expectations are key to continuing to build that relationship.
I look forward to stopping by more often to see what you are up to! I love reading about these success stories!
Thanks for the great advice, Take care!
