You can not just do lesson on character education

The information that I found to be most interesting in this course was the message that you can not just do lesson on character education and bullying and expect students to be prepared to be 21st century dual citizens. Students must experience citizenship and be taught how to reflect and problem solve. I also found the eight essential questions to be the most valuable in preventing and fostering student responsibility. The information I learned will impact my ability to maintain safety, order and rights in my school by making students aware of things such as mean vs. nice, what digital footprints are and how they can affect their future and giving them the resources they need to think critically about their actions and how they impact others.

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!

Finding Middle Ground

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

Keeping my teens talking – A Parent

Remember to slow down

This has reminded us to slow down and take time for conversation with each other/to build relationships instead of just "work" all the time

Energetic and Experiential

Jill Brown provides an energetic and experiential training that captures the essence of the Generation Text On-Line curricula. Educators are sure to walk away with valuable insight and understanding of this increasingly relevant 15 week program. In a rapidly changing, pluralistic society, the needs of the 21st century learner are constantly evolving and Generation Text sets out to meet that need.

Valuable insight and understanding

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

Builds rapport and relationships from an empathetic perspective

The GTO approach has resulted in students understanding one another more effectively as well as teachers understanding their students and the motivations that drive their behavior to learn and behave most effectively.
