We've spent the last 3 days...
If you've been out at all, please check the Lesson Plan Slides and the Weekly Slides to make sure you're caught up. Tomorrow, we'll do the weekly writing assignment and dig into the #metoo movement a bit more. You should come prepared with your article and be ready to summarize and share the article!
Hi all! We are continuing to work on our advocacy projects. The snow IS BEING REALLY ANNOYING AND I USUALLY LOVE SNOW DAYS. But we'll work with what we've got! I am posting slides and the lesson plans for this week on Google Classroom. If anything comes up while I am gone, shoot me an email!
Half day snow day!
Happy last day of February, people! Okay, so over the past few days we:
1. Finished our discussion of the cultural proficiency.
2. Brainstormed advocacy ideas (to be continued Thursday...)
3. Started learning about consent and sexual assault.
If you've been out at all, please make sure to check out the week 4 slides!
Tomorrow, we'll firm up the advocacy project, come up with groups and guidelines, and set deadlines. Woohoo! Friday, we'll circle back around to consent.
ENJOY THE WEATHER TODAY!
Happy almost break!!!!
Here's what happened this week:
Monday - we watched a part of Miss Representation.
Tuesday - Ms. Mattie-Brown presented Galtung's Typologies of Peace and Violence.
Wednesday - I was out and you all reflected on Tuesday's presentation. :)
Thursday - We unpacked Galtung's theory and applied it to sexual assault and harassment.
Friday - we're going to address cultural violence through a cultural proficiency activity and talk about advocacy.
Sorry for the delay in posts. No homework tonight (woohoo!), just be in class and be ready for Ms. Mattie-Brown's presentation tomorrow!
I'm posting a handout for the guest lecture tomorrow here.
If you were absent on Friday and/or did not fill out your weekly attendance, please do so now! If you were out last Wednesday and missed your weekly reflection, you will also need to make that up. I plan on checking them next week.
Have a wonderful night!
Hello my lovely Personal Safety students! We rounded out the week with discussion about stereotyping and the link between stereotyping and violence. In class today, I also had you fill out your first participation self eval. It won't count as a formal grade this week so we can get the process ironed out (same for the Weekly Writing from Weds). We can touch base on that if you were out!
No homework for tonight, but if you want to get a head start on Monday's readings, they're posted here.
Today, we kicked off the period with our weekly writing exercise. Detective Fortunato came in for the first time. YAY! She introduced herself to the class and took a couple questions. We followed up with a BRIEF look at the Gender Unicorn. We will explore gender more thoroughly tomorrow before delving into stereotypes.
For HW tonight, read the articles listed here and be ready to discuss!
Happy Tuesday! For homework tonight please watch the video on EdPuzzle, summarize, and ask a question. Today in class, we finished organizing and started talking about culture and norms. Tomorrow, we'll introduce gender into the mix.
Have a wonderful night!
Have Welcome to Personal Safety!
Today, we're going to go over the syllabus and the course structure and expectations. There's a lot of "stuff" for this class and I don't want you to get overwhelmed - these structures are in place to help you process the course content and skills. Here are some things you need to know:
1. There's a Google Classroom for this class. If you're absent today, see me for the code.
2. The syllabus lives here and on Google Classroom.
3. The weekly rubrics that you need also live here.
4. I'll post assignments on Google Classroom, here, and also on the whiteboard in class.
5. We use EdPuzzle. Don't worry, I'll set you up today.
6. I'm borrowing the idea of having a slide deck for daily lesson plans (thanks Ms. Mattie and Prof Frasier!). You can find all that goodness here. **Notes and slides will also be on that page!**
7. We're going to work together to figure out the best way for you to submit your weekly assignments. I have some ideas we'll discuss in class.
On that note, you have homework tonight to get you in the swing of things. 1) Watch the TED Talk on EdPuzzle. At the end, I ask you to summarize the video and pose a question. I'll use the questions to help guide discussion for class tomorrow. 2) Have your parent/guardian sign the permission form. 3) You'll also need to take a look at the Gender Unicorn.
