What are the benefits of classroom meetings? How would you implement a classroom meeting? Would you make this a regular part of your weekly or daily routine or would you do them as needed? Who would lead the meetings? You or the children?
Beyond classroom meetings can you think of other effective ways to address important issues in the classroom? For instance, how might you bring up an issue like bullying, or stealing, or name calling? (Is there something in the guidance policy that you found this week that addresses these issues?)
List some strategies, beyond classroom meetings, that help build trust, respect, and a sense of community in a classroom.
