Creating a Community from Chaos
By Linda Christensen
Building a Community from Chaos begins when a teacher reflects on how students are. You always remember how the school ended but not how it started. Teacher in cooperates readings where students get inside the lives of others in history, literature or down the hallway. With the use of journal writing and presenting also helped the teacher, as well as the students. She had to structure her lessons on what was happening in the students` lives. This is an effective way of teaching and helping to build a community.
