sentence frames to help my kiddos ask for what they need this year. 😊

I love this idea.

I appreciate this idea - teacher makes him or herself available and accessible while modeling appropriate communication and emphasizing proactivity. However, if I posted this in a high school classroom, I suspect I’d be opening myself up to avalanches of snark. 

for what it’s worth, I teach 8th and 9th graders. you do get some snark but also, and wonderfully, you get some really clear  written communication from students expressing their needs. I’ll take it.

Oh, and the US is still disproportionately incarcerating Black people and private prisons are making huge amounts off them.
