Creating Caring Students Using Classroom Communication RoutinesClassroom Leadership (2003)
We create caring schools by developing caring students—those who will care for themselves and others, as well as about society and learning. Our emphasis on caring includes nurturing in our students civility, citizenship, the ability to make sound moral judgments, and a respect for others.
We achieve these ambitious goals by using classroom routines that directly and intentionally teach enhanced communication skills. There is a link between communication and caring. The challenge is to put good communication into practice in the classroom.
