Session Title: Building Relationships: The Key to Successful Classroom Communities
Presentation Date and Time: Friday, March 2, 2:00 pm – 4:15 pm
Description: For many interns, issues of classroom management cause the most stress and concern. Novice teachers often seek to control, while master teachers know it is more important to build relationships of respect and work with students. Building community in the classroom during the first days of the school year is crucial. This session will focus on classroom culture and community, providing a rationale, framework, and specific strategies that will create a safe climate for learning in the classroom.
