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 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.”

Valuable insight and understanding

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

My experience with Generation Text has given me a framework for living

Being a part of the Generation Text Online mentor program has taught me the importance of being mentally and physically happy.

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?????
