Session:  Responsive Classroom in Action

Presenters:  Shannon Ausfeld, Erin Campbell, Lauren Devery, Keedra Kirby, Jenna Palmieri, Aleecia Persaud, Christine Simeone, Joely Tetreault-McNeil, Tanya Vivieros, Holly Whittle

Lincoln teachers are immersed in these practices as a school team which has had a positive impact on classroom and school culture. Teachers will demonstrate each component of responsive classroom practices and mindfulness routines. We will then facilitate small group discussions in a roundtable format to address the thinking behind each practice, address implementation tips, and answer questions.

Morning Meeting and Closing Circle: Classroom routines that build community and embed reflective thinking and student talk. Calming Corner and Brain Breaks: Systems and tools for students to develop self-regulation and build stamina for learning.

Interactive Modeling: Explicit steps to teach new behaviors and routines focused on social and academic expectations.

Academic Choice: Giving students an opportunity to showcase their learning through a variety of methods, while still meeting the same learning objective. This includes a process of planning, working and reflecting on their choice of learning method.
