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.

Lunch Bunch success

The students you meet with in the “lunch bunch” are so excited to go to the program each week.

Crazy Schedules

This information is so important, but one that is probably the easiest to neglect due to our crazy schedules. We need to make a concerted effort to make this work a priority and something that we are committed to continue.

Connections make all the difference – A Parent

Hear about their experience in their own words.

I really enjoyed differentiating between bullying and discriminatory harassment

As a teacher I never considered discriminatory harassment in school or online for that matter, I always had one broad term, bullying.

A new way to run a meeting

It is easy to build agendas for meetings that lack the connection. I find that I am constantly now beginning with an activity such as these we are using. I appreciate that as an admin team we are taking time to connect in this way as well.
