      Doesn't take much, does it?
  • "So some teachers got a page that showed that no student selected them?" I asked. "Yes," the storyteller informed me. "We thought every teacher needed to know how they were perceived by the students. We simply gave them the information."
    At this point each professional staff member was asked to select one student from the list who had indicated no relationship with a teacher. Care was taken to make sure each student was selected by someone. Throughout the year teachers were asked to reach out in special ways to this student. Their efforts included:
    1. Send three "I noticed…." statements a week.
    2. Give one eye-hug a day (sustained eye contact ending with a smile).
    3. Give two physical touches a week (high-five, pat on the back, shoulder squeeze, handshake).

    6. Ask them for help once a week
    7. Ask their opinion about something once a week.
