If you would ask a student to sit in a "scholarly position," you would probably be given a blank stare. When I ask my 5 year old daughter what in means to her, she responds by modeling how to sit upright in a chair, feet flat on the ground, hands folded in front of her body, body still, chin upright, ready to learn. As teachers, are we spending enough time teaching our students the importance and benefits of sitting in a "scholarly position?" We are not only teaching our students how to sit properly in chair but showing them that it conveys respect and a willingness to learn. Attributes our students struggle with on a daily basis.
