One important dynamic discussed was the need for students to have soft skills - teamwork, strong verbal communication, adaptability, problem solving, eye contact, a firm handshake and a good work ethic.
Shout Out! to Toisnot MS Social Studies Teacher Bob Iannucci who ties soft skills into his curriculum each day. He shakes hands with students as they enter his classroom, encourages eye contact, asks students to stand when they answer a question, requires them to compliment each other and shake hands before starting partner or group work and assigns presentations so the students hone their communication skills in front of the class. #WCSistheBEST Toisnot Middle School #workNwilson Wilson Education Partnership
