• Communicating with Your Teachers

    Strategies for expressing concerns, asking questions, and obtaining teacher feedback.

    • Make an appointment to meet and talk with your teacher. 
    • If you know of other students who have similar questions or concerns, consider scheduling an appointment as a group.   
    • Plan what you would like to say before you go to your meeting. Write down your questions and concerns to create a list of important points to discuss with your teacher.   
    • Think of solutions and ideas that may be helpful to solve problems being discussed with your teacher.   
    • Be tactful and respectful. Choose your words to ensure that the meeting is a cordial conversation.   
    • Don’t forget to listen.   
    • If your meeting is not satisfactory or does not meet your needs, consider speaking with another adult or your parent to assist with future discussions.
