I really loved the Eight Essential Questions and Mean vs. Nice

I really loved the Eight Essential Questions and “Mean vs. Nice” As a speech-language pathologist I feel it is crucial to give students the language (vocabulary) to express their feelings. I cannot tell you how many times one of my language deficient students acted out because he didn’t have the vocabulary to accurately express himself. Students need to be taught how to identify mean and nice behaviors and to feel comfortable discussing them. I have already planning to use my social skill cards and encourage an open and honest dialogue about mean vs nice behaviors. 2. I found the idea of being a good citizen most valuable. I am planning to incorporate some lessons for my lower functioning students on why it is important to be a good citizen 3. I think this information will positively impact my ability to maintain the safety, order and rights value set because I am providing numerous opportunities for them to act in an appropriate manner.

I found the Adverse Childhood Experience Study most interesting

The information from Dr. Nadine Burke on Adverse Childhood Experience Study was most interesting and valuable for that matter. Understanding the science behind the development or lack thereof, for some students helped to build tolerance and empathy as a pedagogue, which can be easily forgotten as the year progresses and frustration begins to fester with “uncooperative” students.

Cultivating a strong bond can help students in many ways

It is something tangible that I can work on each and every day of the school year, without needing to be within the context of bullying or harassment.
