. . .a pupil attitude factor, which appears to have a stronger relationship to achievement than do all the “school” factors together, is the extent to which an individual feels that he has some control over his own destiny. James Coleman, 1966
Great video!I am in a teaching certification program currently, and it is great to see reaffirmation of social-emotional learning. Building relationships with students is not something I put all that much thought into while considering the teaching path, but there seems to be no downside. The better relationships I have with my students, the more attentive they are in class, and we have more fun as a class.I'm looking forward to reading both your new posts and looking back through your archives.
