Reflection: Routines and Procedures These Kids are on Fire!! Peer Editing and Revising - Section 2: Bright Minds Blazing: Work Time

 

During lessons such as this, I am thankful that I have taken baby steps with my kiddos and have placed such an emphasis on class building and high expectations both academically and behaviorally.  Do I still have students that can't focus long enough to make it though this process?  Yes?  Do I still have students with behavioral issues that prevent them from working with other students?  Yes?  I have the same range of behaviors and attitudes that you would find in any urban setting, but through the years I have found that by investing in my students emotional bank in the beginning of the year, I can get the results I want now.  Besides that, at the very least what that investment has done is it's allowed me to narrow down who's going to need more help and structure and I can give it to them.  

Bottom line- kids will run through a brick wall for their teacher if they know the teacher would run through a brick wall for them.  Teachers don't get respect from urban students because they're adults and "deserve" it.  Teachers get respect from urban students because they've earned it- exactly like our students earn it from us.
