In this episode we talk about the muscle that your student may not be using, that muscle is Bravery. We are following up last week's episode a little bit with this topic, because a character from the book All American Boys, had to be very brave in order to live up to his values and morals. That's why bravery is so important, it's a must have in order for your student to be themselves and live up to their potential. In this podcast, Ian Brown will share the importance of being brave. and how to help your student build their bravery muscle.
In this episode we talk about the #BlackLivesMatter movement through the lens of a teen novel called All American Boys By Jason Reynolds & Brendan Kiely. Also, Ian sheds light on why the #blacklivesmatter movement shouldn't intimidate you from talking to your students about racism, but should encourage and provides you with a golden relevant opportunity to talk to them about racism, violence, profiling, and so much more.
Stress is like an odorless gas that could be dangerous at the slightest spark in a student’s life. Sparks include life-transitions, academic success/failure and peer-group issues, just to name a few. When the spark is ignited, students experience a circuit overload and they could become anxious, depressed, fearful and/or worried. Encourage your student to not ignore the stress but to courageously take a closer look.
