    morning meetings...

    Our district looks on the morning meeting as a time to greet everyone, teach and practice giving compliments and positive feedback, and as the year goes on, the teacher relinquishes some of the organizational control to the students (i.e. notes are recorded by a designated student and reviewed at the next meeting to make sure all old issues are addressed). Everyone is actively involved in a morning meeting, even if it's only to greet someone else; part of the theory is that it's especially beneficial for students who might go the whole day and not really be addressed as an individual. I don't have the book here at home, but it gives lots of examples and anyone can modify it to fit their own needs/goals. BTW we don't do morning meetings every day, but we do them as often as is feasible.
