I really enjoyed differentiating between bullying and discriminatory harassment

As I reflect on this class I must say reflecting on the most interesting topic or area is a difficult one because I do have so many, climate vs culture, dirt vs digital world, citizenship etc. but most of all really enjoyed differentiating between bullying and discriminatory harassment. As a teacher I never considered discriminatory harassment in school or online for that matter, I always had one broad term, bullying. I will definitely incorporate this in my teaching and ensuring my students understand the difference between the concepts etc. I found Generation Text’s Eight Essential Questions most useful. The method of questioning helps students listen, react and respond. It allows students to think about the action, the affective and alternative solutions. Using the Eight essential questions fosters the 4’C’s, communication, critical thinking, collaboration and creative thinking. Having all this knowledge and strategies will promote a positive climate and culture in my classroom and the school community. Students will feel safe and supported as I will not be just teaching them the do’s and the don’ts but through collaboration we will all explore and share with each other making learning more meaningful.

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!

I Learned So Much

As an educator, I am more aware of how my classroom should be (culture and climate) and it’s so important.

How does the Generation Text program prevent bullying?

A story about how implementing the Gen Text Program in a lunch bunch prevented bullying and conflict a K-8 school.

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.

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.

Positive

I appreciate Sam's perspective and positive feedback that he shares with our group.

Small Groups are so beneficial

Attending small groups every week has been such a benefit to my life. In our small group we have an opportunity to release stress and anything we are overwhelmed with by sharing it with everyone.
