As the school year comes to a close and many of our students are ready to fully embrace the Alice Cooper classic, School’s Out, I want to remind you of the I3 Rule: Invite – Include – Inspire!
- Now is the time to reach out to all students, but especially marginalized students and truly invite them to become valued members of our schools and your classrooms.
- Now is the time to include all students, but especially marginalized students in end of year activities and field trips. Give them important roles in end-of-year presentations.
- Now is the time to inspire all students, but especially marginalized students to finish the school year strong and plan to do something wonderful over the summer!
So, invite, include, and inspire your students! After all, you are the decisive element in your classrooms for you have the power to humiliate or humor, hurt or heal, humanize or dehumanize…make the right choice!
Cue the inspiration…
