Teacherscribe’s Teaching Tip #175
Core value #4 - Integrity communications.
I take this one to mean a no gossip policy. How do we communicate with each other without stabbing each other in the back?
How do we communicate without calling each other out and hurting feelings?
I certainly don’t have the answers to this one, but I do know it when I see it and I know it when it doesn’t happen. I like this idea: criticize (or question) in private and praise in public. That doesn’t mean you can’t have hard conversations or bang up against each other or even hurt feelings. If we are all passionate about this profession, then those things are bound to happen, but how we handle those things is the key to everything.
