The more we talk, the more students we lose! Teachers blame the kids because they are not interested but how many times are we as teachers interested in sitting and listening. I know I do not like sitting still and listening. We lose so many teachers each year because teachers are tired and kids are
Yelling doesn't work.
Calling parents often times doesn't work.
Sitting and waiting doesn't work.
Taking things away work for a second.
Giving junk works for a second.
So what do we do?
If you haven't been to a WBT conference, I HIGHLY recommend going. You leave feeling energize, excited and without a voice because of all the fun you are having! During these next few posts, I am going to blog about the different aspects of WBT and how to capture your students without giving away junk and without yelling. You will probably end up loving your job again! I know I sure do!!
So where did WBT come from?
After 25 years of failure, Chris Biffle finally figured out what works with most kids. He has worked in some challenging places, but he worked daily and nightly trying new things and he is still to this day trying things. In fact, the last day of our conference he said "so last night I came up with a new strategy and I am going to teach it to you!" He is excited and wants to help any teacher who will listen and try. These conferences are free and so AMAZING!
WBT teaches and reaches all parts of the brain instead of 1 or 2 parts at a time. That is why WB is so powerful! I can't wait to share more about how WBT has changed my classroom.
