Building Classroom Community Discussion

Take 7 minutes to read the article Building Classroom Community.

Meet with a small group. Sitting in a circle with your group the person wearing the most black will go first. Go around the circle to the left with each person sharing the three factors they consider most important in building a classroom community (be sure to explain your reasoning). As a group finish these statements and be prepared to share with the entire class.
