What is School? Building Rapport and Relationships

#whatisschool continues to be a leading ed-chat thanks to you and your amazing support! I am excited to be back this week after a week away leading learning in New Zealand with a bunch of amazingly inspirational educators. This Thursday, come along to #whatisschool as I am joined by Tobie Taylor Jones to discuss Building Rapport and Relationships.

James Comer (1995) puts it well: “No significant learning occurs without a significant relationship.”  Rita Pierson (2013) says during her amazing Ted Talk that, “Kids don’t learn from people they don’t like.” Join us! 5 May 2016 as #whatisschool discusses the importance of building rapport and maintaining relationships with students and their families.
