I Find Myself Truly Engaged

After taking this course, I find myself truly engaged in the two lessons describing the eight essential questions and “Mean V. Nice.” I have already taken the necessary steps to start a unit in teaching both lessons and making them a bi-monthly routine for the coming year. I especially like the idea of not just threatening students with “dos undefined don’ts” but giving them the tools they need to self access and therefore equipping them to deal with situations that may come up. I have always felt the term “bullying” has often been misused and abused. The idea of teaching students to realize that there is a step that comes before bullying in the “Mean V. Nice” lessons will really help defuse future problems. My objective will be to teach the important of prevention above all else with these lessons in mind for when intervention is needed. I hope to create a professional unit for our schools professional learning time where I will hopefully be able to turn key a lot of the information and strategies I have come away from this course.

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!

Digital Footprint is so important

In order to be a highly effective teacher it is essential to conduct lessons that include students going online independently.

Energetic and Experiential

Jill Brown provides an energetic and experiential training that captures the essence of the Generation Text On-Line curricula. Educators are sure to walk away with valuable insight and understanding of this increasingly relevant 15 week program. In a rapidly changing, pluralistic society, the needs of the 21st century learner are constantly evolving and Generation Text sets out to meet that need.

Builds rapport and relationships from an empathetic perspective

The GTO approach has resulted in students understanding one another more effectively as well as teachers understanding their students and the motivations that drive their behavior to learn and behave most effectively.

Relationships and connections are so important!

These reminders about connections/relationships are so important. It can feel difficult to fit it all in, but without relationships and connection, the rest of the work is SO MUCH HARDER!

The Teacher Student Relationship is so important

One of the things that I found most interesting was learning about is how important the teacher-student relationship is.

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.
