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!

Persistence keeps the program going

Randy, a boy at School 2 has been struggling (basically failing most subjects) in school for several years. When I met him his teachers, counselors, parents and administration were frustrated and simply did not know how to support and motivate him academically. He was always forgetting things, not turning in work, failing tests and disorganized. Last year in lunch bunch we worked on self-advocacy. This email is a testament to his advocating for himself…he continuously went to the counselor’s office asking to bring back Gen Text because our work with him supports him academically, socially and emotionally! How awesome is this?????

I felt safe sharing

It has been great to get to know better the other people with whom I work. Timothy did a great job making it feel like a welcoming environment in which we could feel safe sharing.

Valuable insight and understanding

Ultimately, the skills have a direct impact on decision making, self-advocating, communication efforts, and positively effecting relationships.
