This resource is designed to make it easier for you to navigate through tough conversations with your students, and to help you establish a trusting relationship with them.
Students already walk into our classrooms dealing with external factors like hunger, poverty, family issues, health concerns and sometimes other things that we could never even imagine.
Some of these factors we may never be aware of as teachers unless we start building rapport and have our students open up to us after building positive relationships and trust.
With this SEL resource, routines like daily check-ins will give your students an opportunity to open and share some of the more difficult parts of their lives with you.
Or, at the very least, you will get to know them just a little bit better.
