Positive Connections

Simple strategies can change your classroom interactions.  Based on a webinar by Rick Smith of Conscious Learning, he suggested the the following positive connections strategy.

2 minutes of conversation with a struggling student (i.e. behaviour) per day for 10 days in a row resulted in an 85% improvement.

Taking the time to chat with a student about things they are interested in is a simple way to create positive connections with students.  Two minutes a day might just change your entire day and engage a student in learning.

Strategy Idea from: “Stuff You Can Use” for Managing and Motivating All Students – Rick Smith

~ Thanks to Tracy for the idea.
