Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, Today, 3:21 PM

Pillar #1 is relationships. This means knowing the stories students bring to school, not as excuses, but as part of knowing who that person is. Several years ago, a School manager explained that one "problem student" respected me and he listened to. The conversation stopped there. Instead of wanting to know what that meant, no one, including the School manager, was interested in how to build a respectful relationship with that student. It was like it was too much work.

Nancy Jones's curator insight, Today, 9:36 AM

I love this as a beginning of the year discussion. it is not about what we can't do or shouldn't do, but what we can. It is time to focus on affirmation on a regular basis and accentuate the positive.

Engaging Peppermint Paddy: How Compassion Connects Students to the Common Core and the World - CORElaborate | college and career ready | Scoop.it
When I am lesson planning, I think of the Peanuts character Peppermint Patty. I visualize her struggling to focus while her teacher rambles on about some meaningless task that has no connection to her life. I can hear her teacher drone like a cacophonous trombone “wuh wah wah wah,” while Peppermint Patty dozes off in …

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, August 20, 6:10 AM

Based on Michael Petrelli's concluding paragraphs, perhaps I am now more open to referring to the standards by the state name--if that makes people feel better. I have felt strongly about referring to the standards as what they are, but if the name is the issue for most citizens, then I can move:  "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet" (Shakespeare).
