Tip #355

Back to School Collaboration tip from Edutopia (www.edutopia.org):

Know the Names: This can be huge challenge for some teachers (don’t ask me how I know), but do whatever it takes to learn the names of your students. Use your district’s grade and attendance software if it provides student images from the year before. Developing five-minute games to start each class will help speed the process. Use assigned seats or nametags. Whatever you do, learn those names, and do so quickly. Nothing de-authenticates a relationship quicker than, “I really care about your learning Mr. — wait, what’s your name again?”
