COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Several Chattahoochee Valley teachers attended a symposium on Tuesday about getting everyone in the classroom to work together.

The session focused on expanding teacher's classroom responsibility beyond tests and homework.

“It's different, it's not just put them in the classroom tell them to go over and do their homework,” said Rebecca Watkins, who was a presenter at the event. “You need to be open to different changes. So [you] have to modernize your thinking a little bit."

Watkins was one of the presenters for the event. 

One example of this new concept is teachers leading students in a daily gathering with a friendly greeting and sharing news and announcements.
