Quick Coaching Guide: Dining with Self-Discipline
The cafeteria is a unique area of the school. It is a space where students not only have their meals but one where they can find joy, relax, and recharge for the rest of the day, and in so doing provide students with self-directed opportunities to practice many different social-emotional skills through conversations and interactions with other students. This Guide provides guidance for those who supervise the cafeteria and gives suggestions on how they can enhance the dining experience for students by offering support that allows them to practice their social-emotional skills and demonstrate the self-discipline taught in class. A multifaceted tool for ongoing, embedded professional development, Quick Coaching Guides encapsulate a specific topic through the Responsive Classroom lens and offer educators unique tools for reflection, learning, and planning for change.
