Responsive Classroom at Woodbrook

Woodbrook utilizes the Responsive Classroom approach school wide. The underlying philosophy is that students who feel a sense of belonging and respect exhibit better behaviors. Some specific strategies that Woodbrook teachers use are:

  • Morning meeting everyday in all grades (PreK-5)
  • Students in a classroom create "Rules and Responsibilities"
  • Take a break location in classrooms (Peace chair)
  • Academic choice
  • Children identify their "Hope and Dreams" in the fall
  • Natural consequences
  • If you break it, you fix it (Feelings or tangible items)

The teaching staff is trained on an ongoing process. To learn more, please visit the Responsive Classroom website.
