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!

Crazy Schedules

This information is so important, but one that is probably the easiest to neglect due to our crazy schedules. We need to make a concerted effort to make this work a priority and something that we are committed to continue.

Lunch Bunch success

The students you meet with in the “lunch bunch” are so excited to go to the program each week.

A teacher has many things that they must teach a child.

The content, character, and being a duel citizen in the 21st century are three things that are assigned to teachers.

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.

My Lunch Bunch Experience

Being a Lunch Bunch mentor has been a powerful and fulfilling opportunity for me to support a small group of boys – at a vulnerable age between childhood and adulthood – develop emotional and social skills that I expect will positively impact their personal and academic success.

Made me think

I found the sessions useful...I did....it really has made me think about how I am interacting with the staff and how I can connect more with each one. It really is powerful stuff. Truly. I find myself using some of these strategies even in person
