It is important to learn new strategies

I found this course to be very insightful and interesting on many different levels. First off, being a teacher I think it is always important to reflect and learn new teaching strategies. I do not know the last time I really thought about bullying and the 21st century in so much detail and how important it is for students to feel a level of trust with teachers for their own safety. I teach young students so I don’t have to deal with cyber bullying yet and often times my students naturally trust me. However, the more I thought about it through the lessons, I really starting thinking of different ways I can force a bond between myself and students to better their safety. I would never want my students to hide information from me and I know know the importance of how the students see me act can effect how they treat their classmates. Some of the most valuable things I learned from this course were words I can give to students to use when figuring out how to react in different social situations. In particular, the 8 essential questions were very meaningful to me. I will continue to keep up to date through the different publications that were presented in this course and forward new research and studies to the teachers I work with so we can all be informed about the challenges that come with 21st century bullying. I will think of the 8 essential questions when planning social discussions, I will also use many of the activities from this course and align it with my curriculum.

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.

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.
