"A teacher says, Take out your pencils. Begin.
We encounter each other in words, words spiny or smooth, whispered or declaimed, words to consider, reconsider..."

Thank YOU for sharing. It's like magic watching teachers who "get this" and run their classrooms in a manner conducive to cooperative learning. Even the kids with the most challenging "behavior problems" seem to rise to the occasion when treated with respect and given reinforcement in basic social skills. As far as I'm concerned it should be required for all teachers to adopt this approach. BUT so many claim they just don't have the time, sigh!
