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 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 love the methods used in this program

I love the methods Ms.Brown uses to incorporate a lesson of showing empathy, compassion and active listening skills.

Thank you

Thank you Sam, we really appreciate you facilitating our group.

Finding Middle Ground

I need to find a middle ground between what students know (no learning taking place) and what they have to learn.

I have learned so much!

Meeting in small groups a couple days a week has helped me learn new skills, qualities, etc. The main goal is to prepare not only me, but all students for the future.

Breaking down walls

People are more ready to engage in the work when we start a session with such an activity that breaks down walls and gives time to process emotions and make connections before digging into the work ahead.
