Engage Students in Community Meetings

Community Meetings are a great way for everyone to greet each other, share their feelings and emotions, and collaborate. A lot of information can be gathered in these meetings to support students and teachers in responding to the daily interactions and experiences in and outside the classroom. Three tips for structuring community meetings include: 

  1. Develop norms and procedures for the meetings to keep them structured.
  2. Start in the morning or at the beginning of each class period. 
  3. Keep it around 5-10 minutes.
