Do you ever have a hard time understanding your students? The slang, styles and behavior are constantly changing, and it can be exhausting trying to keep up. However, trying to be relatable by acting like them just takes unnecessary effort. There’s an easier way to connect with students…
In this video series, Mister Brown discusses the importance of getting to know children by stepping into their world. While you don’t need to imitate them or become their best friend, you can form relationships both one-on-one and with larger groups. Topics include:
- Showing interest in their interests
- Being genuine
- Seeking to understand them
- Being patient
- Maintaining respectful boundaries
- Fostering responsible one-on-one connections
