Teach Like a PIRATE Week 3: Rapport and Ask and Analyze
Welcome to week 3. I hope you are enjoying the book as much as I am. This week we read the chapters "Rapport" and "Ask and Analyze." Did anyone else laugh out loud while reading about Dave's first days of school? I would love to be a fly on the wall in his classroom! Do you have any first day(s) of school practices that you use to connect with your students? Have you found it makes a difference later in the school year when you make an effort to connect with your students early in the school year? And what kinds of opportunities do you give your students to ask questions?
Next week we will read and discuss the chapters "Transformation" and "Enthusiasm."
