117: What if teachers could extinguish shame?

Shame permeates our schools and classrooms. Kids shame their peers and, sometimes, unwittingly, teachers shame their students.

Compassionate classrooms, detailed in Hacking Classroom Culture by Angela Stockman and Ellen Feig Gray, extinguish shame. Mark shares an excerpt from Hack 5 of this new book, helping you find out how to eliminate shame in your space and design your own compassionate classroom.
