We know that the great teachers are the ones who connect with their students.
Many teachers are using Rocketoons to make those connections and to improve the learning atmosphere in their classrooms. Rocketoons start conversations that help:
Teachers connect with students
Students connect with each other
Teachers identify and deal with issues that could be causing disruptions to learning
We hear from teachers every week who love how Rocketoons have helped them connect with their students. One teacher recognized one of her fourth grade students as a potential problem. A loud and aggressive child, he alienated many of his classmates. She used Episode 3: Bullyvision, to start a Cartoonversation on bullying.
And the atmosphere in her classroom changed.
"The Bullyvision cartoon made me see that I was being a bully. I went up to those kids that I bullied last year at recess and told them I was sorry," he told the class when Tim Wheeler, creator of Rocketoons, came to visit.
"We can't know everything our students are dealing with," said his fourth grade teacher, "but I like using Rocketoons to get them talking to me and to each other about bullying, about being so busy, about failing, and social media. And it amazes me every single time the things they say. The most unlikely kids have the most thoughtful things to say."
We hope you'll give Rocketoons a try in your class. And when you do, be sure to drop us a note on how it went.
