Staff: Month 2, Meeting 1

Prompt

Blue boxes denote content to read directly to your audience.

Have all staff pair off. (If you have an uneven number, one group will be a triad.)

Each person has 2 minutes to respond to the prompt uninterrupted. (Remind the second person to respond to the prompt, not what their partner has shared.)

Today we’re looking philosophically at a really important aspect of school climate and safety.

What are some key reasons that student relationships are important?

Ring the bell to start their time. Ring it after two minutes so partners can switch roles. Ring it again after 2 minutes to mark the end of this sharing time.

Connecting

Do this during the last minute in pairs.

What did you find you mentioned in common?

Ring the bell after 1 minute.

Weekly Challenge

This allows you to close the discussion on a positive note.

This week, focus on building the foundation for some great relationships with your students.
