A1) We try from Day 1 to create an atmosphere of community, and that empathy is a big part of having a positive relationship with each other. We try to make students aware that their kindness can be change makers in each other’s worlds in the most meaningful of ways

A4: Ts are overwhelmed w/mandates. Instead of doing all, I spend time on what’s BEST for Ss. I focus on feedback, not grades. Collecting endless data is important for reports, accreditation, making school look good. Scared to write this tweet. I hope I’m supported!

My vision desires Ss to be “Significant.” They are encouraged to use their skills, knowledge & time to benefit others. Be significant, not successful. Ss do small group work where they share ideas of how to practice instead of the typical music strategy “drill & kill”

A4 one day our students arrived on campus to find several uniformed police officers. Instead of just "teaching the lesson" I guided circles to have discussions about how they felt. I didn't get through the curriculum that day but I did what I thought served them best

A2: I have been referencing “bystander” often. We discuss real life events like recent unimaginable crimes targeting the elderly. We discuss the importance of helping when someone is in need. Being a “bystander” is encouraging the bad behavior. Ss must stand up for all.

A4: just last week a S came in during my planning time. I was feeling rushed and stressed with 1000 things to do, but I could tell the S needed to talk. So glad I put on my brakes and just listened bc he had a lot to say

A3. Explicit Teaching: Teach kids what respect is. Define it for them and with them. Brainstorm as a class what respect looks like, sounds like, and feels like. Give them the vocabulary needed to express respect.

A4: Last school year I had a homeroom that was clearly divided by culture/ background. I took the time to talk about empathy, kindness, and respect. This was before we implemented PBIS.

When we used our class Makerspace last year, students needed to share the purpose of the item they were making and how it is designed for another’s needs/wants.

A4: Almost daily I’d like to think I do something right by stopping a lesson when I hear a “colorful” comment and decide to talk about it with the whole class before moving on with the lesson

A1: We are using PBIS, which has been positive for us: We have the 4 R’s: be reflective, responsible, respectful, and responsible. The respectful piece is helping us to think about and act for others.

I'm with you - in fact, there are lots of us with you, and trying to do the "right thing" when it comes to grading / feedback transfers to the students knowing you're trying this for THEM. More Ts on this journey: 👍

A4: All the times I ditched my curriculum plans to pull my kids in close, listen, & talk us through a challenge- whether it was a conflict between classmates, a loss of a loved one, or a scary current event- until we felt safer, connected, & in the right space to learn
