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!
