One of the biggest problems in education is how often people undervalue the critical importance of background knowledge. The fact that so many misunderstand Bloom's Taxonomy doesn't help.

We can’t control a lot of what happens to us on a daily basis; far from it in fact. We can, however, control our & response toward what happens. Take a step back & see the big picture before allowing a small event to push you out of alignment.

I find it very heart warming when a headteacher knows the name of every school cleaner and makes a real effort to get to know them and ensure they feel valued. In my view, “all parts make the whole” when it comes to school communities - some people are sometimes forgotten.

Student asks their teacher a question: Give student the answer, he/she acknowledges & then moves on. Thinking ends. Ask student an extending question, he/she acknowledges & initially gets frustrated but then feels empowered to find a solution on their own. Thinking broadens.

Students from time to time make poor choices (just like adults). Keep in mind though, it’s the conversations we have with them and not just the consequences that make these poor choices opportunities.

when we ask a question and take an answer from the first person who raises their hand... we mistakenly give the impression that it is about speed.

"If we check the weather each day before we choose our outfit for the day, why don't we check our student's "temperatures" before heading into a lesson? Here's one way one our presenters and rockstar teacher does it.

Be ok with giving the student some space if that is what he/she wishes. But make sure they know you're happy to give space, but you're still going to be present & be there. Space doesn't mean ignore.

In the end, make sure the student knows you're not going to give up & you won't quit trying. You won't be outlasted & you won't be discouraged. You're not going to throw in the towel like others may have. You will be there for both the good & bad days.

Actually sit down with the student & tell them how you feel. Tell them you'd like to reset the relationship. Ask the student what you can change to better connect. Ask and listen. Listen to learn, not respond. Be vulnerable... be human.

Talk to former teachers & hear their thoughts. Observe who they are spending time with & get to know them & you may learn something useful. Try to connect with a shared interest. Find out their favorite food & encourage a lunch date.

At this point in the year you may feel you’ve tried everything when it comes to connecting with a challenging . You may feel you’ve exhausted all your options & it’s time to throw in the towel. This child has no doubt seen others throw in the towel. Don’t.

Resilience is a useful capability to have, sure, but efforts to promote it in kids often distract from efforts to identify and challenge harmful practices (or policies) that *require* resilience

It’s so easy to go looking for the negative & to go looking for fault. There are those who seek it out & feed off of the missteps of others & seemingly are energized by these moments of vulnerability. See through the noise & see the best in your students, colleagues & peers.

I don’t think it’s an intentional effort not to do it. I think we all get caught up in getting to work & focusing on our ‘to do’ list and we forget this important step. Sometimes it’s the gentle reminders that help us the most so we can refocus & realign.

Had a good time on Friday doing a little brickin’ with my friends at Clark-Vitt Elementary. There’s nothing better than to get students excited. Until next time, friends. cc

Take time to check in with your students on a consistent basis. This small amount of time often means the world to them. This time also provides valuable insights into our students’ lives so we can better connect our content. I honestly can’t think of a better use of our time.
