Keeping Them in the Room–Strategies
Welcome District 916 Staff!
Research shows that the meaningful connections adults make with students help them to feel safe, understood, and valued as a full member of the classroom community, and as a by-product, motivates them to stay in the classroom and engage in learning even longer. At the same time, there are students who have needs or bear burdens that manifest in behaviors that lead to children being misunderstood, misrepresented, and marginalized. You’re about to gain insights to help you not only increase the amount of time those students stay in the classroom, but keep them functioning at a high level so they can learn.
