Why it Works
Gen Text allows your school community to be intentional in providing a learning environment that is accepting, tolerant, respectful and supportive.
Our approach has a very specific train the trainer implementation plan that was designed around creating a positive and supportive school culture that is sustainable and systemic.
Gen Text provides administrators the common vocabulary and strategies to implement with their staff in order to allow staff to model this approach to their students. We believe in the motto, Don’t tell me, Show me and Involve me.
We must take a proactive approach to providing a culturally proficient school culture and provide learners with the tools to successfully communicate and collaborate with others. Prevention of school dropouts, absenteeism and violence requires and depends upon a proactive approach that can be infused into every day teaching and learning.
Learning is a constant. We must provide our students with consistent learning opportunities that address their everyday problems. Unlike more complicated systems, you will see results of learning and shifting of culture on day one of implementing the Gen Text program.
The Generation Text Online provides each teacher a system that works not just in a controlled environment but in a real life classroom. Our approach provides immediate evidence which supports teacher buy in. Learning is a constant. We must provide our students with consistent learning opportunities that address their everyday problems.
We equip teachers, administrators, and parents with a common vocabulary and common strategies which, used consistently, result in successful student outcomes. LEARNING IS DONE BY THE LEARNER. For learning and changes in how one thinks and makes choices to take place, instruction must be SIMPLE, REPETITIVE and CONSISTENT.
