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.
