Behavior…ours, theirs, the good, the bad, and the ugly! This week’s #edchatri topic will be all about behavior. When most educators hear the word “behavior” they think of compliance type behaviors (e.g. sit in your seat, raise your hand, use appropriate language, etc.), but behavior is much bigger than that. Academic behaviors, for example, like taking notes, studying, managing your time, are critical behaviors for success in school, college, and career (I bet you know adults that could still use some work in this area, right?). Engagement, motivation, attendance, even 21st Century Skills are all behaviors and all instrumental to student success, but ironically educator preparation rarely includes much training on the topic of behavior.
Join Nicole Bucka (@nbucka) this Sunday night, March 20th at 8 pm, to collaborate and share resources around shaping skills that some would argue are even more critical to college and career than academic learning.
