See below for the lessons that we have done so far this year!
Lesson 1 - Introduction to the Counselors and THINK
In this lesson, we reminded the students about who we are and how they can come and see us if they have a problem. After that, we introduced them to the acronym THINK, which gives them assistance if they are in a tough situation and are not sure what to say. Using this acronym, students will be sure to make sure they choose their words wisely and using words which will not hurt others. This acronym can also be used for posting online.
Lesson 2 - Bullying Prevention, Being an Upstander
In this lesson, we discussed the difference between rude, mean, and bullying behavior. Then, we defined what it means to be a bystander and an upstander. A bystander is someone who sees bullying happening and does nothing about it, an upstander is someone who sees bullying happening and does something to stop it (such as telling the teacher or telling the bully to cut it out). To reinforce this idea, we read the book "Dare" by Erin Frankel, which is about a student who learns to be an upstander. After the book, the students were able to practice being upstanders with different scenarios.
