The 8th grade lesson was a culminating activity as well as a lesson about rumors.
Students were engaged in learning how to set goals, take steps towards the goal, and avoid people and activities that might prevent them from reaching their goal.
In 8th grade, our Too Good for Violence lesson:
Students will be able to demonstrate effective skills for expressing constructive criticism; making clear requests; and identify words and phrases that tend to provoke defense reactions.
Congratulations to our ALEX Award Winners for November!
For sixth grade’s first lesson on Too Good for Drugs, the students took a pre-survey asking them their opinions about different situations involving drugs and alcohol. Then They completed a “time capsule” in their workbooks. This time capsule asked them about their favorite things and they will look at it again at the end of the course. Then they considered what kind of person they wanted to be when they turned 14 and wrote down goals that would help them become that person.
Seventh grade discussed diversity in the classroom and how to address one another when there is a disagreement.
Too Good for Violence: Students took a pre-survey and discussed “I Feel” statements as a way to express our feelings. We also discussed how certain situations make us feel and react.
