Getting students to think about actions

  1. I really was interested in using the Eight Essential Questions as a way to get students to really think about their actions and the actions of others. Guiding students through group conversations about the Eight Essential Questions really seems to be an excellent way of handling any type of bullying situations going on in your class. I also love the idea of role playing to help students understand the concepts of “mean vs. nice” and “it was just a joke.”
  2. What I found the most valuable is the concept that it starts with the teacher. It is our responsibility to promote the 4 C’s from day 1 and understand our 21st Century students so that we are prepared to handle these kinds of bullying situations. If we do not teach them to be aware of bullying then they will never realize that it is happening around them. I realized that I shouldn’t wait for bullying to occur to teach my students about bullying. It needs to be a preventative concept.
  3. Moving forward, I plan on using many of the strategies taught in this course in order to maintain Safety, Order and Right in my school.

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!

Each mentee got exactly what they personally needed

A teacher has many things that they must teach a child.

The content, character, and being a duel citizen in the 21st century are three things that are assigned to teachers.

It is important to learn new strategies

I found this course to be very insightful and interesting on many different levels. First off, being a teacher I think it is always important to reflect and learn new teaching strategies.

There is a huge discrepancy between what students thing and what teachers think

While adults may believe they are doing enough, students do not think we are.

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.

The lessons with videos were the most valuable

The lessons with videos were the most valuable and I actually shared them with a coworker who teaches internet safety to the high school students.
