Cultivating a strong bond can help students in many ways

Much of the information presented in this course was both interesting and extremely informative on the topic of bullying and preparing students to be citizens in a 21st century world. The information that I found to be most interesting was the impact of the student-teacher relationship, and how cultivating a strong bond can help students in many ways. This was interesting to me because it is something tangible that I can work on each and every day of the school year, without needing to be within the context of bullying or harassment. I found the information regarding the Eight Essential Questions to be highly valuable. Since my school does not currently have a method for assessing the classroom climate, or a protocol for discussing these issues with students, I think that I could very well use these Eight Essential Questions to bring this topic into my classroom. I think that this information will impact my ability to maintain Safety, Order, and Rights in my school because I will be teaching my students strategies to prevent and cope with situations that have already occured, and that may come up in the future.

Whether you are a school administrator, teacher, parent, mentor or corporation, we can design a program to suit your needs. Let’s make the connection!

Extremely Rewarding

Working with Jill Brown and her colleagues from Generation Text Online has been extremely rewarding for the members of our leadership team. The strategies and lessons endorsed by GTO are relevant, thought provoking, and engaging. The training offers participants an opportunity to connect with colleagues, experience personal growth, and place our organization on a path to success.”

I would 100% recommend it

Being in Gen Text small groups in high-school has many beneficial aspects. I would 100%, recommend it to other students considering the various benefits in people skills.

Students Respond Positively

Students haver responded positively to the activities and assignments embedded in the program, leading to rich conversations.

Persistence keeps the program going

Randy, a boy at School 2 has been struggling (basically failing most subjects) in school for several years. When I met him his teachers, counselors, parents and administration were frustrated and simply did not know how to support and motivate him academically. He was always forgetting things, not turning in work, failing tests and disorganized. Last year in lunch bunch we worked on self-advocacy. This email is a testament to his advocating for himself…he continuously went to the counselor’s office asking to bring back Gen Text because our work with him supports him academically, socially and emotionally! How awesome is this?????

COVID-19 Effects

For a year now we have escaped our regular lives due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I can speak for everyone when saying that quarantine has affected us mentally, socially, and physically.
