Beyond Icebreakers: First Lessons for Effective Learning Communities

(0)
Experienced teachers know that a first lesson with any class sets the tone for the rest. An icebreaker or getting to know you game is nice, but doesn’t quite cut it. This resources provides a model for effectively establishing learning expectations and routines, while ensuring students feel safe and supported in your learning community. The structure and activities suggested leave space for noise, mess, personality and individuality. Importantly, this lesson focuses on the students as learners before tackling curriculum content. This lesson outline can be manipulated for use in nearly any secondary learning context, and altered for use in primary, vocational or tertiary settings.
