Behaviour is Communication
THIS IS A 7 minute ED TALK.    Please sign up for 'ED TALKS'  http://isabcpd2014stgeorges.sched.org/event/03c9e1ab9b7e37b043fb1cf8401190ae#.UquERxZ97Hg. This is one of 6 presentations in an hour and provides the overview of 1 of the 6 presentations.

Our students communicate with us through their behaviour almost as much as, or even more than with their actual voices. By paying attention to the non-verbal cues, we can understand our students better and be better able to tend to their needs. With the simple act of getting curious, we invite students to be full participants in their own lives and take greater responsibility for the choices they make, and ultimately become better communicators.

Have you set a group work assignment and had one kid left out, others complain they do all the work, have EAL or LAC students marginalized, and then wonder how you can grade each student? How does it feel to be one of these students and what can we, as educators, do instead of traditional group work?
