At the beginning of class students collect their personal tone chart. On one side they read and select from the 5 tone criteria listed.
On the flip side students record evidence of demonstrating that specific criteria.
This process takes minutes only, yet it builds a strong community, helps students to take charge of their own progress, and helps faculty to keep attendance.
TOGETHER WE CREATE TONE TO DISAGREE
Fail to use tone skills and brains shut out insights, approaches and answers we all deserve. Good tone that comes from this practice offers a relaxed setting where differences add currency.
When students become co-leaders TONE yields awesome results. When faculty try do it all, sadly we work against students’ brains and our own! No wonder we burn out. In this approach tone skills reboot our brains for mental alertness and mind-bending discoveries keep learning alive for all.
