The authors talked a lot about modeling in this chapter. This quote jumped out at me: "Within a school culture that models and expects every member of the school community to look out for one another and values the voice of each member of that community, the mindset they operate under is: What we model is largely what we get." What do you think of this quote? How do you see this play out in your classroom or school? How are you modeling connectedness to your students and/or fellow teachers?
We only have one chapter left after this week. We will be reading "Key Connector 8 Know When to Unplug" next week. Be sure you are taking time to catch up on your reading and commenting. And if you haven't introduced yourself in the week 1 discussion, please be sure you do that.
