    A1- I love small groups and just talking to your shoulder partner and then asking for someone to share out. #teachpos
  • PHausTech Sep 9 @ 7:39 PM EDT
    A1: For me, the best thing has been to provide options. Don't just do in person discussions. Provide a back-channel like @Flipgrid, @padlet, #GoogleClassroom, etc. #teachpos
  • khoggardGRT Sep 9 @ 7:39 PM EDT
    A1 We discusses this Q in #KidsDeserveIt a few weeks ago! Great conversation about allowing for alt/tech ways for kids to share their voice! Excited to use @Flipgrid this year and #gridpals #TeachPos
  • MrsHopp126 Sep 9 @ 7:39 PM EDT

  • Shapiro_WTHS - Moderator Sep 9 @ 7:39 PM EDT
    A1 - Most important is getting them comfortable in class from the beginning. The first few days and weeks can be huge difference makers. Also, using a variety of games and questioning techniques. #teachpos
  • LindaEdwardsi Sep 9 @ 7:40 PM EDT
    A1 Make time to have quiet individual chats with the quiet shy kids. Try build a relationship and learn about their outside interests. My quiet student was happy to share using @Flipgrid #teachpos
  • LevineWrites Sep 9 @ 7:40 PM EDT
    A1: I create small opportunities with limited risk. What they are often looking for is an opportunity for confidence to be proven. #teachpos
  • teacherstenger Sep 9 @ 7:40 PM EDT
    I love the idea @Flipgrid has for shy Ss having them film a wall or picture or even using a mask. I like digital presentations in general as it allow Ss to participate how they feel most comfortable. #teachpos
  • LevineWrites Sep 9 @ 7:40 PM EDT
    Love this, Linda! #teachpos

  • PHausTech Sep 9 @ 7:40 PM EDT
    The time spent working on relationships is critical to comfort for students. With out that, true & meaningful sharing cannot occur. #teachpos
    In reply to @Shapiro_WTHS
  • Blended_Math Sep 9 @ 7:40 PM EDT
    #teachpos - A1 - I ask questions via technology to get answers from students who are reluctant to speak in front of others. Google Forms and @goformative are great ways to ask in dept questions and then review whole group anonymously.
  • amynicolebettis Sep 9 @ 7:41 PM EDT
    A1: Turn and talk is a great way to get everyone talking - my Ss who are reluctant to share ideas with entire group are usually willing to open up to trusted partner... and then I ask Ss to share out what their partner’s ideas were. #teachpos
  • PHausTech Sep 9 @ 7:41 PM EDT
    Spot on! Options and relationships! #teachpos
    In reply to @LindaEdwardsi, @Flipgrid
  • _on11 Sep 9 @ 7:41 PM EDT
    A1: Demonstration of understanding should be on their terms. We need to be open to all students to utilize prerequisite skills to showcase their knowledge. Art, music, @flipgrid, coding, website design, for starters. #teachpos
  • gdorn1 Sep 9 @ 7:41 PM EDT
    Hi,Gretchen from KY joining in. STEM.#teachpos
  • MrsHopp126 Sep 9 @ 7:41 PM EDT
    Yes! So many of our students communicate nonverbally. #teachpos
    In reply to @LevineWrites
  • khoggardGRT Sep 9 @ 7:41 PM EDT
    A1 Important to remember especially with our introverts #TeachPos #champforkids
  • MrsHopp126 Sep 9 @ 7:42 PM EDT
    Q2: Classroom management- a struggle for many! What advice can you share? #teachpos
  • mserilynbriggs Sep 9 @ 7:42 PM EDT
    A1: It’s important to try different ways of communicating throughout the class. This can include small group discussions so everyone has a chance to participate, or maybe even an online environment where all students can type their responses intstead. #teachpos
  • Shapiro_WTHS - Moderator Sep 9 @ 7:42 PM EDT
    A1b - Let’s not ever force kids to be uncomfortable. I had a 10th grade boy who rarely spoke in class. When the semester ended, he visited me everyday. He said,”I was listening to every word in class.” #teachpos
  • _on11 Sep 9 @ 7:42 PM EDT
    So true. Culture before curriculum. #teachpos
    In reply to @Shapiro_WTHS
  • LevineWrites Sep 9 @ 7:43 PM EDT
    A2: For me classroom management is mindset and academic engagement. My students don't have time to misbehave and are too engaged to ruin things for the rest of the class. #teachpos

    As what I call "a recovering introvert" I can relate to this. So important to think of and listen to all. #teachpos
  • gdorn1 Sep 9 @ 7:43 PM EDT
    Working 1:1 on projects and activities, carrying on conversations to find out about their interests. #teachpos
  • LevineWrites Sep 9 @ 7:43 PM EDT
    Yes!!! #teachpos
  • MrsHopp126 Sep 9 @ 7:43 PM EDT
    Pairs and small groups are some of my favorite ways to group students. The one-on-one interaction with a peer can be the game changer for some. #teachpos

    A2 - Again, it’s about “tone setting” and building trust. I’ve written probably 10 chapters on building a class community. We aren’t managing kids, we are teaching them. It’s why in college they need to change the language. #teachpos
  • PHausTech Sep 9 @ 7:45 PM EDT
    A2: Focus on relationships before rules and policies. Collaborate on rules to build ownership. Never give up on any student, work to know them, relate to them, and grow with them. #teachpos
  • LenaTroxtell Sep 9 @ 7:45 PM EDT
    Yes it can. I also think its awesome when their peers share out what they say and the others are positive about it. It makes them more willing to share out next time on their own. #TeachPos

  • MrsHopp126 Sep 9 @ 7:45 PM EDT
    I haven't tried FlipGrid yet, as I'm trying to figure out how to integrate it into a small math class. Hoping to do some research into it soon! #teachpos

    I've found that games are a great way to encourage even the most shy of students to come out of their shell, just a little bit! #teachpos
    In reply to @Shapiro_WTHS
  • Blended_Math Sep 9 @ 7:46 PM EDT
    #teachpos - A2 -Running an efficient and effectively managed classroom is just as (or more) important than the curriculum when you first start. It takes work, willing to try new things, and emotional consistency. I recommend the book Teach Like a Champion: https://t.co/YK3YRy56ye
  • teacherstenger Sep 9 @ 7:46 PM EDT
    Establish relationships early on. Treat Ss consistently with praise as well as redirections. Do not play favorites. Remember to practice #patience and #empathy on a daily basis. #teachpos

  • Shapiro_WTHS - Moderator Sep 9 @ 7:46 PM EDT
    A2b - The classroom is like a big house with lots of personalities. We must find how they blend together to make it work. Respect, trust, empathy, positivity and honesty hi a long way. Also, LOVE YOUR JOB⭐️ #teachpos
  • LindaEdwardsi Sep 9 @ 7:46 PM EDT
    A2 Be consistent, have routines and clear expectations. Develop relationships #teachpos
  • MrsHopp126 Sep 9 @ 7:46 PM EDT
    Yes! I love one-on-one interactions with students. I find it works for both positive interactions, as well as those more difficult ones, such as discipline issues in the classroom. #teachpos
    In reply to @LindaEdwardsi, @Flipgrid
  • _on11 Sep 9 @ 7:46 PM EDT
    A2: Consistency is key. Be open to advice and redirection from veteran teachers. Find your story hidden in theirs. When you view things through their eyes, it changes the way we approach management. #teachpos

  • MrsHopp126 Sep 9 @ 7:49 PM EDT
    I had a similar situation this year. A student who is a sophomore this year came up to me and greeted me by name and said he misses me being in his English class. He was a student who I thought didn't even know my name! #teachpos

    In reply to @Shapiro_WTHS
  • khoggardGRT Sep 9 @ 7:52 PM EDT
    A3 the key to successful co-teaching is being prepared to collaborate before/debrief after. Make time for it, bc it is truly what will make the teaching powerful! #TeachPos
  • Blended_Math Sep 9 @ 7:53 PM EDT
    #teachpos - A3 - It is important for the co-teachers to be on the same page as far as expectations and what co-teaching will look like in the classroom. Just like anything else, co-teaching takes planning, trying new things, and evaluation for it to work.
  • LevineWrites Sep 9 @ 7:53 PM EDT
    I am off to meet (online) with my editor. See all of you wonderful #teachpos people soon. Enjoy your week and make a difference while keeping yourself cared for.
  • PHausTech Sep 9 @ 7:53 PM EDT
    A3: Co-teaching is most powerful when each member builds off of the strengths of the other and passions build when their voices come together! #teachpos
  • LindaEdwardsi Sep 9 @ 7:53 PM EDT
    A3 It’s very helpful to share your observations, strategies and learning goals for students you share. Make time to talk to each other #teachpos
  • _on11 Sep 9 @ 7:53 PM EDT
    A3: We don't get to co-teach any longer, but @megan_hacholski and I had a pretty dynamic team. I was usually the loud, crazy, animated one, and she provided the calming balance. She also tied up the loose ends that I sometimes overlooked. #teachpos

    I like when I have a co teacher to bring them in and jointly work together on subject matter! #teachpos
  • Blended_Math Sep 9 @ 7:56 PM EDT
    #teachpos - A4 - Make sure to read and know what is in the paperwork, but remember that the kids are more than what is written on paper. Teach the student, don't teach the documentation.
  • MrsHopp126 Sep 9 @ 7:57 PM EDT
    Time is of the essence- and something all teachers are lacking! I've found the Google docs are a great way to share thoughts when an in-person meet-up just isn't possible. #teachpos

    Having a community in your classroom where all Ss feel safe and included. Ss who are engaged and not afraid to offer opinions allow a real conversation about education to begin. Be consistent, passionate and share your love of learning! #teachpos
