Build Them Up

Chief Justice Ireland once said, “Give the same support, encouragement, love, kindness and patience to every child as if they were going to be the next superstar, because we never know.” As we reflect on our own teaching experiences, how do we encourage and support our students?

Food for Thought:

  • Increased opportunities for students to share thinking
  • Increased opportunities for peer-to-peer discourse
  • Model positive behavior for students and/or take time to explicitly teach appropriate behaviors
