About the Course

Now, more than ever, it is essential for students to feel safe and comfortable in the classroom. Research has been very clear that students have to know they are cared for, they are safe, they matter, etc. We can go back to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. How do we do that? A morning meeting is a place to greet each other, share personal news or news about school, create a trusting and caring environment, and a focus on positive behavior. This study of current research and the use of the text The Morning Meeting Books: K-8 by Roxann Kriete & Carol Davis will give educators an immediate application for their classroom. Ideas and strategies fit well with Common Core State Standards for speaking and the core competencies noted by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning.

Ann
This was an effective class that helped me become more familiar with Morning Meeting and set one up in my classroom.
Alberta Maybee
Great class if you want to implement Morning Meetings. So much easier to navigate professional reading when you have a forum to push your thinking.
Ellen Angeles
This class was great! I have my first two weeks of Morning Meetings planned out. Hearing feedback from other teachers has helped me think about what will work the best. Glad we are making emotional and social as important as academic. No one cares what you know, until they know that you care.
