We Should Be Better Because We Are Together | Practical Theory

"Much of the conversation around education reform has focused so much on how do we get better teachers, get rid of bad teachers, etc… that it powerfully misses the forest for the trees.

Responding to Defiance in the Moment | Responsive Classroom

Responding to Defiance in the Moment | Responsive Classroom | Professional Growth and Innovation | Scoop.it
Children who defy us often get to the core of our fears as teachers. They make us question our abilities and provoke feelings of insignificance. But when we rise above our own feelings and find developmentally appropriate ways to respond to these students, we offer them a path to success and a model of how to get along in the world.
