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!

Made me think

I found the sessions useful...I did....it really has made me think about how I am interacting with the staff and how I can connect more with each one. It really is powerful stuff. Truly. I find myself using some of these strategies even in person
