Game On: Teachers!

To encourage the students at Walker-Grant Middle School our instructional staff continues to support students to become self-motivated independent learners by incorporating the following in our classrooms:

  • Ensure opportunities for students’ success
  • Provide frequent, early, positive feedback that supports students’ beliefs that they can do well.
  • Help students find personal meaning and value in the material
  • Create an atmosphere that is open and positive.
  • Help students feel that they are valued members of OUR  learning community.
