Job interview question:
Yesterday ____ came home all flustered because another boy was chasing him after school and kissed him. (Kids will be kids I know) but none the less it made him uncomfortable enough to talk about it with his dad and I.

He said "this kid bothers everyone tho, not just me".

I explained that this type of behavior is usually a way that some kids try to get attention-there is no harm done. We must tolerate each other in all our differences. Then ____ turned to his dad and asked- " dad, will you teach me to fight?"
I let him and his dad finish the conversation at that point.

Later _____ said to me that he would like to make an appointment with you to see what you would do in a situation like this. He felt that in order for _______ to ask his father for a fighting lesson, that means he feels a lack of control, and that's a pretty distracting feeling from his studies.

I guess this kid (______) follows _______ and sits next to him in class even after ________ asks him to please tend to his own business.

It's tough to deal with things like this because we understand as a parent when a child tends to be a little more aggressive in someone else's space - our girls are totally like that.
So- we would like to make an apt. with you and discuss not only this situation but _____ in general.
I know you are super busy, but if you could take a half hour soon to talk with us, we would be so greatful! ______ can meet around 2:30 most days.
Double Thanks,

What's the difference between a morning meeting & a class meeting?
Group Practice:
In your group, choose
a grade level
a common whole-class problem
a teacher to lead the class meeting your group's assigned style
Social Reform
Discussion comments:
allotting class time to class meetings?
teacher as director
students not role playing the non-example
Discussion Comment:

The one by Max Longhurst in particular resonated with me when he said that future teachers don't really know what kind of management stance they prefer until they work in the classroom. In class, it is seemingly easy to choose which stance I think I should use, but I might choose to do something entirely different when I have my own classroom.
Additional resource about "Culturally Responsive Teaching"
What tends to happen...what to do instead.

How teachers use wait time, give clear instructions, develop rules, procedures, and routines.
This was answered by all in this week's discussions, so let's head to the MATRIX!

Hi this is_______'s mom . As you are aware she has missed a lot of school this past 2 weeks. We have been going through this the past 3 years. She gets severe headaches, nausea and neck pain. We have tried medications ect, ect.. This year we chose to go to MMA hoping that she would be able to overcome these symptoms. This morning she was up and going and started vomiting. UUGGGGHHHH! As a mother I am very frustrated and not knowing what I can do to help her.

I would like to know what you would suggest to do help her get caught up. I am not sure if you are willing but I am hoping that you can help.

I am not certain if you see that she is having problems at school. She says that she has not made any friends this year. Kids seem to ignore her according to her. Is there anything that you have noticed?

Anything that you can do to help would be really appreciated. I am still hoping every day that I can get her to school.
