No Teacher Left Behind Creating Professional Development for Transfer to Classroom Practice Overview
The handshake It means to sort of squeeze their hand, not too hard that their hand turns blue, then shake it firmly. It means that someone is sending you the message that they are serious. It can also be construed to mean “we’re in agreement” or even that an informal contract has been reached, as in the proverbial handshake deal.
