Using structured morning meetings to start every day in a context of support and respect.
The key elements of the meeting are:
Greeting: Students and teachers greet and welcome each other.
Sharing: Students share something about themselves or their lives, and the rest of their peers listen, then ask follow-up questions or offer comments.
Activity: The group completes an activity that encourages teamwork while re-emphasizing social or academic skills.
Morning message: Students read a short message from their teacher, usually describing what is to come in the day ahead.
