The Responsive Classroom Approach
- The social curriculum is as important as the academic curriculum.
- The greatest cognitive growth occurs through social interaction.
- Teachers must model the social and academic skills they wish to teach their students.
Morning Meeting Time:
Every morning we start the day with a morning meeting. During this time students read a morning message which previews that day’s schedule and special activities. Students then take part in a greeting which allows them opportunities to practice a proper hand shake and eye contact amongst other things.
