Teacher Research Topic

I have posed the following research question: How can I implement meaningful morning meetings in my second grade class? This research will also explore how I can use the morning meeting to create a supportive community of learners, how the morning meeting can help students transition into the day, and what happens if I involve students in the planning and running of the morning meeting.
