Every teacher, parent and school principal wants students to have a successful school experience achieving high levels of academic success. Unfortunately this is not always a reality for all kids in too many of our schools. How can we increase literacy and mathematics results not only for students who are struggling, but for all kids? How do we build a sense of belonging and connectedness among our students, parents and their school? How can schools help to reduce stress and anxiety in their students? How can schools provide a positive and safe learning environment for their kids?
Based on over thirty-five years as a teacher and school principal, training and coaching teachers and parents, Chris Alexiou in “Lessons From The Schoolyard” presents many thoughtful and collaborative school wide and classroom approaches used in two of his schools. “Lessons From The Schoolyard” provides teachers, parents, principals and anyone interested in increasing student-learning with proactive strategies to harness the skills and talents of students, staff and parents to create positive learning experiences for kids.
When teachers, parents and the whole school community work together great things happen for students.
