Yes I agree. However, it needs to be
modeled by the teachers. Acknowledging them as a part of the class,
Instead of it being the teachers class, is the best way to start.
Getting to know the students individually, is the first thing teachers
should learn. When little disputes happen in class, help by
acknowledging feelings, give words they may not have, ask if you are
right, facilitate the discussion, offer support, then thank them for
helping solve… Do this often and the children will start to solve
issues without assistance, however, be flexible when your presence is
required for a disagreement. Even if you have to say, let me finish
this and I will be right there. If they are asking for help, they do
not feel confident yet in their new abilities.
