Other Announcements?

Brown and Evans (2002) argued that student connectedness included things such as commitment
to school, student autonomy, belonging to school and having a firm belief in rules of school.
Barber and Schluterman (2008) suggested that connectedness had four components: the quality
of a relationship (e.g., family bonding), the degree of liking of an environment or relationship
(e.g., liking school), a feeling or attitude (e.g., sense of belonging) and perceptions of antecedent
conditions (e.g., feeling close to people). Blum and Libbey (2004) described school connectedness
as the belief, by students, that adults within their school community care about their learning, have
an interest in them as individuals and have high academic expectations; teacher–student
relationships are positive; and students feel safe at school. McNeely, Nonnemaker and Blum (2002)
described connectedness in terms of students’ feelings of closeness to the people at school, feeling
happy at school, feeling a part of school, feeling that teachers treated them fairly and feeling that
they were in a safe environment.

Erving Goffman Dramaturgical Theory,
we are all just actors on the world’s stage

  • Name one of the four components of connectedness according
  • to Barber and Schluterman

Problems to tackle this week:

How can you, as an individual, help another individual feel a sense of belonging?
What can we do as a school to promote belonging?
Is all belonging good?
How do we balance group membership with acceptance of others?
