We’ve created 40 weeks of proactive classroom management strategies, relationship building techniques, and character development to put the adults in a building into character action! Many of them are research-backed practices that have a great return on investment. We think about them as “low-burden, high-impact” ways to put a simple, consistent focus on relationships, SEL, and character. Some schools post it weekly in their staff lounge. Some admin send it out in a weekly newsletter. Some teachers create a weekly meeting time where you can get together and talk about how it’s going and create some accountability and support. Choose something that works for you! But here’s what we know: this is one of the BEST ways to start to create buy-in from students because they see you doing the work first!Download CharacterDares Here
