My Teaching Methodology and Practice I believe the point of teaching is the learning process. My teaching method uses a combination of several elements, with attention to the age group of the class, in order to make the learning process as strong as possible. I include a PowerPoint presentation, a text (that I summarize - usually the 3 main points), personal stories to make either a good point or to make the wrong choice clear, occasionally I used a brief video clip to introduce the topic,...
Students will each walk through the following steps. 1. They will be able to identify character qualities in themselves that they want to develop that makes them a great friend. 2. They will be able to articulate the “what to avoid” list of qualities in people to avoid when picking friends.
I’ve worked professionally and as a volunteer with youth for almost 40 years. This has been formal as well as informal in the nonprofit sector and includes many years specifically working with students from 10-25 years old. I’ve helped unwind many troubling situations youth face today as well as seeing many flourish with some helpful instruction. This is not a counseling class but focuses on content to help frame good friendships (and recognize which are not good choices). The class comes from my concern seeing what has developed in our culture for young people today. It’s far harder, more complicated, and includes statistics that are sad with alarming suicide rates. One of the problems I see is that help is provided several years beyond when kids need help. The resources are not nearly available enough for most teens today. I’ve picked significant books on essential aspects that I’ll simplify and summarize in our classes and make them beneficial and relevant for our discussions.
