Give kids lots of opportunities to COLLABORATE & SELF-CORRECT their SEL challenges
•Create Strong Classroom Community
Imagine those "problem" children becoming more cooperative, with less reminders from you.
Imagine teaching in a class that works for everyone... a class in which more progress and academic learning happens.
Imagine students solving more of their own challenges with less fights by using more constructive communication skills.
Implementing the brain science of learning just makes good sense, it's definitely easier, and beneficial results rapidly accumulate.
Teachers who've adopted this approach enjoy professional and personal advantages that earn them well-deserved respect, in and out of their classrooms.
Everyone wants to belong... it's human nature. Being 'seen,' even for brief moments, can increase belonging and strengthen class community.
Kids want to do well. Kids want to be acknowledged for doing their best, on their own terms. Kids want to belong. Kids want to be 'seen.' Kids want to matter. Kids want to be seen as capable of solving their own challenges.
With our training, teachers learn to do less, while empowering children to do more. More of what they really want to do... but need the right kind of encouragement (that doesn't come across as nagging or manipulating).
1-on-1 ... this approach would not be very successful, but ... bring together a group of kids to put their heads together to find solutions for problems familiar to all of them... and you get a whole different set of results - very positive results.
The Kids' Own Wisdom approach provides a research-based strategy for activating and anchoring kids' own natural-born inclination to collaborate with peers for discovering Win-Win's around challenges that matter to all of them.
Short-term results: Growth of mutual respect and healthy belonging for improved interactions in school and beyond.
Long-term results: Cumulative growth of critical thinking skills, problem-solving skills, collaboration skills, vocabulary, empathy, perspective-taking, school readiness, and much more...

I created this podcast because I wanted to share the best of what I could find in the world-wide community of inspired (and inspiring) teachers... and I wanted to share a few of my own thoughts, as well.
Listening, you'll gain fresh perspectives and practices that, until now, were not available on such a broad scale.
