Teaching Social Skills in the Classroom
Teachers and counselors are failing to give students the tools they need to succeed in the classroom and beyond. Time In reveals a fresh perspective on why this is, and presents real solutions that work.
Washington would have us believe that this gap can be closed if only we can become better at packaging and presenting information. Of course, that was the focus of No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and the results haven’t been encouraging. Other sectors tell us that technology will win the day and engage the minds of young learners. Still others argue for longer school days or more teacher accountability.
Sarah Brown-Wessling, the 2010 Teacher of the Year, said it best: “I think we often operate in the classrooms as if our agendas take precedence over our students’ lives and the developmental reality of their situation.”
Time In will help you bring the focus more clearly onto the relationship aspect of learning and give you real tools that will make it easier for you to bring your passion for teaching to those who need it most.
