How to Teach Teens About Love, Consent and Emotional Intelligence

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • They’re looking for more guidance from parents on emotional aspects of romantic relationships — everything from “how to develop a mature relationship” to “how to deal with breakups,” according to a survey by the Harvard Graduate School of Education’s Making Caring Common project.
  • The majority of us have experienced lessons on human anatomy and pregnancy prevention in school, but what Weissbourd is referring to when he says “good sex education” goes beyond the basics.
  • Health educators like Shafia Zaloom are trying to create a more holistic approach to sex ed by teaching lessons in love and intimacy.
  • Talk about your own romantic relationships – – Tackling these conversations with teens can be intimidating, especially if you’ve never done it before.
  • Share with your teens any lessons you’ve learned about the skills, attitudes and sensitivities that it takes to maintain a healthy romantic relationship or any close relationship,” the Harvard study suggests.

Disengaged Teachers: A Problem We Need to Solve

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • How can we expect students to be engaged in their learning if their own teachers are not engaged?
  • Pink identified three essential elements that drive human motivation: – – When I think about these three elements in the context of teaching, it becomes less shocking that so many teachers are unengaged.
  • The art of teaching should matter to every educator, so it blows my mind when I see teachers who do not aggressively pursue their own learning.
  • Technology is radically impacting the way students learn and, as a result, teachers are expected to adapt their teaching to engage a new era of students.
  • It’s crucial that teachers find a space where they can connect with other inspired and inspiring educators to maintain a clear purpose.

ASCD Express 13.11 – Disengagement Problems Disguised as Discipline Problems

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • We created an Incident Reduction Plan to identify the discipline policies and classroom management practices that fueled student disengagement, and therefore “persistent danger,” in our school.
  • In this school, our policy mandated students report to class in order to obtain a pass, but Fatia needed help now.
  • By prioritizing de-escalation in our incident reduction plan, our school culture shifted to supporting staff in maintaining a calm demeanor and approaching students with kindness rather than hostility.
  • Building relationships, through homerooms, advisories, or just small conversations in the hallway or lunchroom, demonstrates an authentic, positive regard for students by school staff.
  • Over time, student discussions during weekly meetings with administrators shifted from discontent about teachers and school policies to ideas about what programs and curriculum students would like to see.

  • Possibly the most common worry expressed by parents lately is their befuddlement at what supports and limitations they should be placing on their child’s screen time and use of social media.
  • We also hoped  that our students would not only learn self-regulation, but that they would adopt practices associated with “digital leadership” – in other words, using social media for good – a concept promoted by Jennifer Casa-Todd in her book, Social LEADia.
  • Our Students’ Messages – – Here are several examples of excerpted advice written by our students to their parents: – – Things I think you should do to help your kids is warn them, even if they are too young to know about predators.
  • Internet and social media is apart of many people’s lives and it’s important to know how to be safe on it and protect those you love.
  • But nowadays, kids can get the same feeling of being part of a group from social media and don’t have to actually interact with people, so their social anxiety never goes away.
