As Christian educators, we understand just how crucial it is to create cultures of love in our classes where all students are known, feel like they belong, and can flourish in their learning through our social/emotional support. But how do we accomplish this culture of belonging with actual structures and practices in our day to day work? Responsive Classroom, the approach some of us have encountered at site seminars at Genesee Community Charter School or through reading books like The Morning Meeting Book and The First Six Weeks of School, provides those concrete structures and practices to support students in a culture where all students are known and valued. Attendees of the Responsive Classroom four day workshop hosted at Halton Hills last summer describe the workshop as one of the best professional learning opportunities they’ve ever had. Building on our past work with growth mindset, this year’s district PD day will introduce you to Responsive Classroom, will explore and embody its approach with activities and actual stories from our classrooms, and will provide you with resources to implement Responsive Classroom in your own classroom too.
