It’s one of the root tenets of renting. You teach your child to share (or maybe not!), you acquaint with them to be kind, and you teach them to say “please” and “thank you.” But if the authorization figures in their life aren’t demonstrating these basic teachings, can we expect our children to do so? You know, that whole “do unto others as you intention have them do unto you” thing! One teaching philosophy that is gain grounding momentum says yes. It’s called No-Nonsense Nurturing, and it focuses on “keeping desires high by only praising outstanding effort.” Teachers are the scholars in the classroom and their role is to direct, not ask their students to do something. So instead than say, “When you’re done with the assignment, please train your per to the head of the class,” a teacher would entirely say, “Bring your per to the head of the class when you’re done.” They say that the instruction “please” indicates that there is an option, and by removing it, there is taste room for misinterpretation, putting the teacher in the power seat. Teachers also y out less time disciplining and more time using model evaluators as good examples. As a sixth-grade teacher in Charlotte, NC, demonstrates, it’s not unusual to approve of a teacher directing a class by saying, “Vonetia’s looking at me. Denario put her pencil down — angelic indicator. Monica put hers down and she’s looking at me.” The method is being heralded by Kristyn Klei Borrero, the CEO of the Center for Transformative Trainer Training. She says it is based on the best practices she’s observed from some of the highest-performing tutors out there and that it provides structure when students need it most and the be produced ends are positive. According to school authorities in Charlotte, where nine tutors are using the practice, out-of-school suspensions have declined. “It notices schoolchildren who are doing the right thing,” Klei Borrero said. “It originates this positive momentum, but also gives the students who might bear missed the directions another way of hearing it without being nagging, and also think over it in action.” But not everyone is on board with this new fad in teaching. Detractors annoy that it is less interactive and creates “robotic” students. Time leave tell if the new method takes hold, but for now, I’m still asking my kids for “the magnetic word”!
