Get students thinking and learning by getting them talking!
Transitioning from home to school can be chaotic, but it doesn't have to be. When you make Morning Classroom Conversations (MCCs) a regular part of your homeroom or advisory period, you give students a safe space to practice critical and creative thinking, build active listening skills, learn to respectfully disagree with others, and strengthen peer relationships... all while improving overall classroom climate.
Written by expert practitioners in the area of SEL, this book provides teachers, school counselors, and other conversation leaders with a wealth of tools to guide successful MCCs from start to finish, in just 10-15 minutes! Features include:
Three calendar years' worth of thought-provoking prompts and themes
An overview of the underlying structure and goals of MCCs
Vignettes and student and teacher voices
Adolescents need to feel heard and understood, by adults and by their peers. MCCs teach them to channel scattered thoughts and strong feelings into dynamic discussions while also strengthening social, emotional, and character development and building the skills they will need to achieve their goals as they transition to adult life.
