Quick Coaching Guide: Seeing That Students Belong and Are Significant
Students are most successful when they feel valued, and all have a basic need for belonging, significance, and fun. This Quick Coaching Guide offers teachers guidance in giving students a sense of belonging and significance. Students who feel this are more focused and engaged in learning, more respectful, and have strengthened relationships with their teacher and classmates, which in turn supports social-emotional growth. Students who feel significant and that they belong are more engaged and have a more positive and successful learning experience. 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.
