Do we care about our credibility as a teacher as much as we care about their reputation as a student?


Some believe that they can stop school shootings from happening where they are, but unfortunately, we are learning that school shootings are our new normal, and we may not be able to change that.


In a previous blog post, Peter DeWitt wrote about the dark side of labelling students. Labels sometimes assign students to fixed categories, and getting out of that category can be tough. To remedy the potentially negative consequences of labels we must do two things, and here, Thomas Guskey writes what those.


Research shows that labels do not always have a positive impact on students. Should schools continue to use labels to help students succeed? Are those labels actually helping?


To meet the objective of reaching every student and demonstrating that we understand them, we should understand that it is the school's responsibility to reach students with SEL content anywhere and everywhere they take their devices.
