Hi and welcome back to Attentionology for K – 5 Teachers!
Not a day goes by without some news somewhere in the world that relates to the negative impact of distractions.
Conversations come and go about the best way to address this important issue…for adults, as well as for children.
Host a Focus Forum – If distractions affect you, your students and your school, make a list of questions to consider around this challenge…
questions to address when you host a Focus Forum to grow attention skills.
How Are We Doing? – We’re never too old to grow our attention skills.
Collaboration is an effective way to work.
Set a time to meet and agree to focus on growing attention skills that will:
1) enrich your programs.
2) become models for the students you serve.
Begin by agreeing not to take anything for granted.
Ask questions that relate to your school’s goals.
What’s going well?
What do we need to do better?
What do we have already to help improve?
What do we need and need to do to make needed changes?
In the face of constant change, taking time to stop, review, reflect and renew is more important than ever.
What can you include on your Focus Forum agenda?
