The Responsive Classroom Approach

Some Highlights:

  1. The social curriculum is as important as the academic curriculum.
  2. The greatest cognitive growth occurs through social interaction.
  3. 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.
