Public Displays of Affection:

How to Escape the Hormone Zone

 
 

It's Spring. So, you're probably seeing way too many public displays of affection in your school. You may feel like you work in The Hormone Zone. Let us help you find a way out. If it is challenging trying to teach and counsel "hormone-poisoned" youth, here are some absolutely terrific interventions to help your teens use their heads instead of their hormones.

 

Methods to Manage

Teens' Public Displays of Affection

On-the-Job Kissy-Face and Coffee Breaks
When kids debate your site's standards regulating romantic contact, inform them that the standards derive from the work world, not your personal preferences. Advise your youngsters that as soon as business work places commonly permit hugging, kissing, etc., you will too. So, in our part of the world, we tell kids that the very instant that our large employers like Nike and Intel, start offering Coffee and Kiss breaks, we'll do it too. That should cut down a bit on the amount of public displays of affection in your classroom.

Work a Little, Kiss a Little
Ask students to name all the jobs they can successfully do and gaze longingly into someone's eyes while working; there may be none. Ask your youngsters to guess what happens– especially in a bad economy– to people who work a little, kiss a little. Also, ask them to observe for employees involved in public displays of affection in work places, like at a grocery store or restaurant, for example. Again, they will see few or none.

That Other Fire Will Have to Wait
Have your students name the jobs or businesses they may one day wish to do. Ask them to identify the results of kissing, hugging, etc. while working these jobs. For example, what could result from a fire fighter, surgeon or air traffic controller being distracted by romantic activity at work? Have students answer that question humorously by determining what the distracted worker might say when asked to concentrate on work. Elicit silly answers, such as the fire fighter responds with "That other fire will have to wait." Rely a lot on humor to defuse the tension around discussing public displays of affection with less than responsive teens.

public display affection postersStop the Affection Connection
As you can see pictured in Poster #121, you can give a clear name to your expectations for social conduct. Inform students that your site is a "No-Cuddle Zone", and follow through on that standard of public displays of affection. That very humorous term will be far more effective than more conventional approaches; students will often begin to use the term themselves. To purchase Poster #121 or one of our other PDA (Public Display of Affection) posters, click here.

Teach the Rejection of Affection
Work with both partners who are involved in problematic displays of affection, and give them memorable, crystal-clear standards so that it is hard for students to even begin to claim that they forgot the rules. A very quick, hard-to-forget guideline for social contact at your site: Touch only from the elbows to fingertips, and only after asking.

In Case of Hormone Overdose
Years ago, families reliably taught their offspring what they needed to know about appropriate interpersonal social behavior. Those social skills are not always reliably taught at home any more. You may want to make it your job to teach what the family should have taught. Remember that telling youngsters "what not to do", may not be enough to change the problem social behaviors. Be sure to teach them "what to do" instead. Be sure to cover these social skills that are necessary to stopping public displays of affection: Hand Control, Mouth Control, Distance Control and Clothes Control.

Don't Freak, It's Back-to-School Week:
Survival Strategies

 
 

 

In between trekking from school to school, conference to conference, and agency to agency all summer, teaching our popular Breakthrough Strategies to Teach and Counsel Troubled Youth Workshop, we've been busy producing knock-your-socks-off, new handouts and posters.

Some of these brand new handouts and posters are so new that they aren't even for sale yet on our website, but as a subscriber to this internet magazine, you can have some of these attention-grabbing worksheets now, for free.

We hope you enjoy these exciting, new back-to-school strategies.

The picture (at right) shows our Poster #132 (click to view) but as a subscriber, you can get a version of this item in handout form free.

The handout version of this device leaves a blank spot for you to add students' faces to the cereal box, or students can make this addition on their own. This is a fantastic back-to-school strategy to use the first day of school.

 

Put Your Students on the Cover

The poster pictures a newspaper headline that says "School: It Isn't Just for Dating Anymore." You can purchase that poster or get the handout version here for free.

The handout version of this device leaves most of the newspaper blank so your students can make the headline become anything they choose. For example, students might write "School Isn't Just for Talking on Your Cell Phone Anymore."

Our Most Creative Student Behavior Management Interventions Ever

Our Most Creative Student Behavior Management Interventions Ever

 
 

 

Some of our best ideas aren't really our ideas. The first couple of student behavior management interventions in this issue were inspired by Dr. Matthew Meyers from LAUSD.

 

Most Creative Student Behavior Management Methods
 

Shaquille on Line 1

This is such a great idea. This strategy is one of the terrific ideas suggested by Matthew from LAUSD.

Staff at his site are working to create celebrity wake-up calls for students. It fits L.A. perfectly and you can easily make it fit your part of the world. Get local or national celebrities to record wake-up calls for your students and start their day with a bang.

No one sleeps through a call from a big name star. Their eyes will be wide open.

 

Put Your Doors to Work

motivational intervention Teacher free resources for classroom managementFor years we have been recommending that you put your walls to work by hanging our popular motivational posters.

At LAUSD, they don't just work their walls, they even work their doors too.

They have created door hangers that they leave on the homes of absent students. We liked that idea so much that we created door hangers for the classroom (pictured above).

As you can see, the door hangers focus on instruction and testing, and are very motivational. You can make your own by downloading a blank outline of a door hanger image. That's how we made our versions.

Succeedies: Breakfast of Graduates

This behavior management method is like nothing you've ever seen before.

They put really successful athletes on the cover of a box of Wheaties, the Breakfast of Champions. Have your students put themselves on the cover of "Succeedies: Breakfast of Graduates."

To do this, purchase boxes of Wheaties and have your students alter them, or provide them the art supplies to create mock-ups.

Use a digital camera, have students take head shots then transfer them to your computer. Next, print the pictures and have students add them to the cereal boxes.

This activity is a lot of fun and potentially inspirational. Plus, it's hard to stay sour and negative about school when you are involved in a fun project like this.

 

Put Your Shirt to Work

In this issue, we've already discussed putting your walls and doors to work. If you're a teacher, now it's time to put your clothing to work too.

You're going to love this unusual behavior management strategy.

Create buttons or stickers that say "Call Me Banker" or "Don't Call Me Teacher" and attach to your shirt.

Inevitably, students will ask why your button or sticker makes such a bogus claim. Reply by noting that since graduates earn $329,000 more than dropouts, you prefer to be called "Banker."

 

iPod Planet

This is one of my favorite student behavior management interventions ever.

Like many people who work with children and adolescents, you probably don't know which you hate more: iPods in class or cell phones in class.

Instead of waging a constant battle against distracting technology, prevent problems before they start.

First, have students make a list of The Worst Places to Use Your iPod or The Worst Places to Use Your Cell Phone. Include suggestions like "during surgery" and "at church." Be sure to include your site on the list.

Post the lists on the wall, then warn students that they will face unimaginable consequences if they use their iPod or phone in class. Be sure to convey this message using humor because students will face humorous sanctions.

Students will be required to switch to an obsolete version of the offending device for the rest of the class or day. So the iPod will be traded for a cassette player or clunky 8 track tape player. The cell phone will be traded for a dial phone.

The trades should be done using lots of humor to ensure that you avoid the usual power struggles that iPods and cell phones can normally cause.

If you don't have ancient cassette players and phones at home, you can pick them up inexpensively in thrift shops. Students are often intrigued to use low tech technology like dial phones that they may not have seen or heard of before; that intrigue can even distract them from arguing.

Ultimately, students who use prohibited devices will come to expect that they will have to trade their cute little iPod for a dusty, over-sized record player.

3 Steps to Better Student Discipline

 

teacher classroom management blog

 

3 Steps to Better Student Discipline

 
 

K-12 Keynote Speaker Ruth Herman Wells

I'm Youth Change Workshops' Director Ruth Herman Wells, M.S.

We continue to get the same questions on discipline again and again at our workshops that are touring the country, and coming soon near you.

In this issue we will give you our best answers. In both our live and online professional development courses, we give you hundreds of strategies that answer "How do I get kids to behave?"

In the meantime, here are some of our best tips and tricks to get you started on improving student discipline in your classroom or group room.

Here is the surprising truth about student discipline: Discipline and consequences are often ineffective.

Yes, every school or agency needs both, but alone, they don't work. Alone? Yes, if you have a discipline and consequence structure set up, but have not first taught your students the skills, motivation and attitudes that they need to perform the desired behaviors, you will almost certainly find your discipline is ineffective.

Children and youth often can not do behaviors that they were never taught. Further, those youngsters who have bad attitudes and no motivation may have no interest in performing to your satisfaction.

Yet, teaching students to have the desired skills, motivation and attitude is almost universally over-looked at most sites. If you want to remedy that oversight, here are the 3 essential elements that must preface or accompany your student discipline and consequences:

 

3 Steps to Better Student Discipline

 

STEP #1
Want Student Discipline? Teach Skills

Years ago, families taught their offspring the basic skills required in school and other settings. Now, many students have never been taught the necessary nuts-and-bolts behaviors that are essential to functioning.

Students may see bad behavior at home and bring it with them to your site. That's why many youth seem to have no sense of acceptable anger control, verbiage, or personal space and distance.

Set up any discipline and consequences you want, but if the child lacks the key skills to comply, discipline can't make much difference.

The list of necessary skills is long, and includes attendance, discussion skills, respect for teachers, respect for peers, punctuality, homework management, hallway behavior, how to sit at a desk, how to use a locker, and on and on and on.

Expecting these skills before teaching them is like expecting snow in summer. It's not very likely. Notice how consequences and discipline can not compensate for missing specific skills like those listed above.

STEP #2
Want Student Discipline? Teach Motivation

school poster 126If a child believes that your service is unimportant, their behavior is likely to reflect that belief.

Children once learned at home about the value of school or your service. If contemporary students don't learn that at home, and you don't teach it at your site, the child's behavior may reflect their contempt despite any disciplinary efforts.

Poster 126, shown at right, illustrates what we mean when we say "motivate students."

This poster markets math like it was a pair of jeans or an MP3 player. Yes, it is sad to have to do that, but discipline without motivation is like summer without heat: you may wish it was different, but wishing doesn't change anything.

 

STEP #3
Want Student Discipline? Build Positive Attitudes

student discipline poster 37If a child has a negative attitude about your site, that's likely to be reflected in problematic conduct.

Discipline usually can't compel a child to change, but adjusting the child's attitude to be more positive, can create results that by comparison, seem almost magical.

Here is a sample technique: Ask students to write Help Wanted classified ads that start with "Desperately Seeking Someone Mean to Join Our Team."

Discuss the ads that students produce and help students consider if bosses hire and keep surly employees.

Want an example to show students to inspire them to create great ads? Look at Poster 37 at right, and use it as your example.

Fix Classroom Management Problems: Repair Your Broken School Year

 

teacher classroom management blog

 

Fix Classroom Management Problems:
Repair Your Broken School Year

 
 

 

K-12 Keynote Speaker Ruth Herman Wells

There was definitely a theme to many of our Fall '07 workshops.

I'm the trainer for the live Breakthrough Strategies to Teach and Counsel Troubled Youth Workshops, Ruth Herman Wells, M.S.

In our live behavior and classroom management workshops, many of you continued to emphasize that your classroom and school have become seriously out-of-control.

To start off the new year, it only makes sense to give our top tips to repair serious problems at your school or agency.

By the way, for those of you who did attend one of our Fall seminars, we have a new page full of the resources you heard and saw in the workshop. This Past Workshop Participants Only page is just for those of you who have attended the workshop. Reach it by clicking here.

Here are our initial suggestions for what to do to improve problematic classroom management enough to salvage a school year that has been unusually difficult or dangerous.

 

Strategies to Fix

Classroom Management Problems

 

Start Over

Many professionals do not realize that it is always easier to stop the problematic class than to salvage it.

No, you don't have to board up your classroom and hang a "Closed" sign on the door, but understand that it is much harder to fix a broken class than to just start over.

To start over, you can declare the old class as done, and begin fresh in every possible regard. Scrap the rules and make new ones. Rearrange your furniture, develop a new seating plan, and even consider renaming your class. It will also be important to discuss the problems with the class, and to work with your students to make this new venture work better.

However, these initial changes will not be enough. You have to be different and teach differently. It's way past time to understand that "same-old-same-old" methods will not magically start working.

It may be time to realize that you must upgrade your skills and methods for working with out-of-control youth. Some specific suggestions to begin those upgrades are below.

It's Not Just About Relationships Anymore

You may really struggle to manage your most misbehaved students if you use relationship-based approaches with all of them.

While we love relationship-based methods with most students, youngsters are not one-method-fits-all creatures. Relationship-based methods (including character ed, values clarification, trust-building, and praise) will fail with the most unmanageable students, conduct disorders (CDs).

This blog's second and third issues gave you an introduction to conduct disorders. (Click the menu at the top of the page to view those Introductory blog issues.)

Those issues alerted you to avoid most relationship-based and conventional approaches with CDs. If you use just one style of behavior control methods with all your students, you probably have already discovered that "nothing works" to control your class.

Here are some resources that show you methods that will work far better.

If ou want more than just introductory help, click here to get all the information you need on conduct disorders in one place, our Conduct Disorders: All the Best Answers for the Worst Kid Problems book. The bottom line: Until you learn about conduct disorders, regaining control may remain impossible.
 

Become a Fearless Manager

You know the teachers– the ones who can manage almost any class or group.

No one can simply hand you techniques and make you one of those teachers. Even the most updated methods can't hide any fear or worry you may have. Our strategies will help, but they won't alleviate the need to become one of those fearless managers who know that they can manage any class, no matter how difficult.

The truth is that students have amazing radar. They read us adults like open comic books. If part of you is really worried about successfully controlling a group, that fear becomes like neon, and everything else you do is reduced to a whisper.

You need to develop that internal fortitude and certainty that you can manage even the most unmanageable group. To gain that, we suggest watching the true pros of class and group management.

We especially recommend that you find someone with a similar personality and style. Juvenile court and corrections staff, vice-principals, alternative ed teachers, and special ed teachers often provide some of the best models because they have honed their skills with the toughest students.

 

Students Wanted, No Skills Required

Since most schools have no formal curriculum to train kids how to be students, you are expecting students to have skills they may never have been taught.

That's like expecting students to know how to swim even though they've never been taught.

You have to actually teach the school behavior skills that you want students to use in your classroom. Otherwise, you set rules that many students are untrained and unprepared to follow.

You absolutely must teach all the school skills that students need. A few of the most important on a long list include: respect for teachers, how to be part of a class discussion, what words to use, how often to talk out during class, how to get help from teachers, and how to interact with other students.

Be sure you work on students' motivation too. Skill training alone isn't enough. You must convince students that school is incredibly important.

Need dynamic ways to do that? Use the motivational interventions pictured on our posters. You don't have to buy the posters; just read the ideas and use them.

 

Set Behavior Standards and Ensure Compliance

You can not permit the kind of behavior problems that have been occurring at some sites this school year. Some of the participants in our workshops  have described students who are inappropriately touching teachers, openly defying teachers, and entering and leaving classrooms at will.

You can not allow the standards for behavior to slide. There is no way back if you do. Right from the very start, you must have high expectations and compel your students to live up to those standards.

We have heard from teachers who just keep teaching while students refuse to quiet down or pay attention. Imagine the chaos if other compliance-based settings operated in such a manner. For example, would there be any order in a grocery store if the clerk just handed you your groceries after you announce that you'll be taking your groceries but not paying?

You are the "brakes" for out-of-control students. When you don't provide acting-out students with help to stop misbehavior, there is nothing to slow them down.

You must stop instruction and address misconduct. Ideally, you will get to the point where you can prevent disruption before it starts. For now, if you are someone who does need to repair a "broken" school year, be sure to promptly acknowledge and effectively address misbehavior. The longer you wait, the worse it will get.

Best-Ever Most Effective Student Behavior Management Methods

Best-Ever Most Effective
Student Behavior Management Methods

 
 

 

We've been hard at work devising attention-grabbing, unexpected student behavior management methods for all the "kid problems" you're dealing with.

Most of these decidedly different, potent, new behavior management methods have been turned into posters.

We've actually added a whopping 100 new posters (click here to view).

If you are planning on coming to one of our Fall 2007 workshops in Portland, St. Louis, Austin, or Phoenix, you can count on these lively, unorthodox ideas being included in the 200 strategies we give in each inservice.

By the way, we even still have some of our half-price work study slots open for these workshops, so call 1.800.545.5736 now if you want to grab one.

But, you don't have to wait for our workshop dates to arrive. Some of our provocative, new interventions are right here in this newsletter, and ready for our subscribers to use today.

 

Best, New Student Behavior Management Methods

 

Fire Up Students' Interest in Finishing School

behavior management poster 43This intervention is both an activity you can do with students, and it's a poster. Click here to enlarge the picture.

The text says: "Graduates are often the first hired and last fired. Everyone else? Last hired and first fired. Graduates often send the layoff notices that everyone else opens."

You can see this device is quite the eye-opener. To use this device, ask your class to discuss the text.

You can purchase this item as a wall poster (Poster #43) by clicking here.

Good Pay to Ruin Our Day: An Intervention
for Bullies

stop bullying poster 90This intervention is taken from Poster #90. You don't need to buy the poster to use this intervention.

The poster appears to be a Help Wanted classified ad. The text: "Big Bonus for Big Bullies. Urgently need experienced bully. Must not be team player. Must be able to push around both co-workers and customers. If you are a big bully who can create hostility in any setting, we offer you good pay to ruin our day. Big bonus if you can create big rifts on all our shifts."

The humor in this device will help you reach more students, compared to more conventional, straight-forward approaches.

You can have your group discuss the text, or ask them to write similar Help Wanted ads for bullies too, then discuss their creations.

Whether your bullies reveal it or not, you may have gotten them concerned about exactly where will their bullying skills be needed.

 

We'll Give You This Intervention When We're "Un-Procrastinated"

procrastination poster 74This new strategy is taken from Poster #74, but you don't need to buy the poster to use this intervention.

Read the text here: "Procrastination Never Accomplished Anything: Start Now. You'll Feel Better."

Write the text on your board then ask your students to talk about the "most procrastinated" they've ever been.

It may not be grammatically correct, but the phrase will elicit big smiles and better participation from your youngsters.

After students divulge their worst incidents of procrastination, have them discuss how good they felt when they finally completed the chore they'd avoided.

Summarize that discussion by noting that "'Anti-crastinating' feels good," using a silly, made-up term that may stick with students. You can also help students discover how to stay "un-procrastinated."

 

Silly Boys! Interventions are for Girls

poster for girls 80This intervention is taken from Poster #80, but you don't need to buy the poster to use the intervention. Read the poster text here: "Silly Boys! Sports are for Girls".

We often use one-gender-fits-all interventions with students, but one-gender-fits-all approaches may fit no one.

Instead of interventions trickled down or adapted from boys, Youth Change Workshops has methods especially designed to meet the special needs of girls and young women.

This poster is perfect for P.E. teachers and others who want to encourage girls to become more committed to fitness.

Ask your girls to identify other ways to complete the sentence, "Silly Boys! ____ is for Girls," then discuss their contributions. Alternatively, ask your girls to make posters using the sentence.

Improve the Sounds That Come from Your Class Clowns

 

teacher classroom management blog

 

Improve the Sounds
That Come From
Your Class Clowns

 
 

 

K-12 Keynote Speaker Ruth Herman Wells

Hi everyone. This is author and professional development trainer, Ruth Herman Wells, M.S.

In almost every workshop that we hold, a participant asks for ideas on how to manage class clowns.

You know the youngster. It's the student who may be the next David Letterman or Rosie O'Donnell, but unfortunately, their comedy can seriously deplete your limited contact time.

Some youngsters also use humor that would make even Lenny Bruce blush, and you may question whether the contributions count as humor at all.

The sounds that come from your class clowns can "make or break" nearly any class or group activity. Because of this, it is absolutely critical that students be able to manage their verbiage and conduct.

Although most schools and agencies want students to consistently manage their verbiage and conduct, very few sites have a formal, written-down plan to teach their youngsters the specific nuts-and-bolts skills that they need to comply.

So, self-control skills are expected in most schools and agencies, but not explicitly taught in most schools and agencies. Not surprisingly, students who aren't taught self-control skills, quite often lack those self-control skills.

Here are the initial few skills that your aspiring comedians and "wannabe" talk show hosts need to transform show time into school or work time.

We wrote the book on problem students
And we teach the class

 

1. FREQUENCY

The class clown may be dominating your group with frequent or constant contributions. It is completely unfair to expect any child to discern the number of times to talk out in your setting, so have your group establish a recommended number of times to speak per hour or class.

Until given a quantifiable number of times to speak, many students will be completely unable to discern it. This will be particularly true for children with limited ability to do abstract or complex thinking; who are in crisis or have serious family problems; have disabilities or cultural barriers.

If you consult the class on how to manage this issue, you will get considerably more cooperation than if you dictate the procedures to them. To motivate your class clowns to consider the value of moderating the frequency of their contributions, have them list jobs that they may wish to do.

Elicit answers from talk show host to truck driver, then ask students to consider what can happen in each type of job, if an employee is dominating the verbiage so much that bosses, customers, guests and other workers can't get a word in edgewise.

 

2. DURATION

The class clown may also keep going and going and going once started. While you may want students to limit the length of their comments, many sites have no plan to teach that skill. Again, the child is expected to comply with a nebulous standard that may not be readily discernable.

Think of all the times that you have listened to an adult drone on endlessly in a meeting. You may be expecting children to use skills that some adults haven't ever mastered.

So, be sure to have your group establish a concrete guideline. Use an egg timer, stop watch or wall clock to aid students to become more aware of the duration of their comments. Without your intervention, your most talkative students will talk more and longer, and your quietest students will talk less and less– exactly the opposite of what you wanted.

 

3. TIMING

It may seem that your class clowns choose the most inappropriate times to make their contributions. It can take a bit of discretion to know what is the right time to make that comment or joke. You may not be able to teach discretion, but you can provide boundaries that will help.

Help students to identify the right and wrong times for these activities. You can have the class members make posters to illustrate the concepts. If your relationship with your class clown has become a battle for control, that is a big part of the problem, and you will need to end the power struggle before you get the improvement you want.


4. CONTENT

Your class clowns may make contributions that are of great concern because the content is wildly inappropriate, a guaranteed source of disruption.

Prior to expecting socially acceptable content, you must first teach your students this skill. That is the first of two steps. The second step is to work with the "audience," those students who instantly "lose their grip" when the class clown makes an inappropriate comment.

It is important to teach those youngsters to maintain self-control. With less reaction, the class clown will often become less motivated to say inappropriate things.

For both of these steps, you can again use potential job choices as a way to illustrate why it is important to choose appropriate content. Discuss what happens when people make inappropriate comments on the job, and what can result when co-workers become involved.

Be sure to note how vigorously sexual harassment, bias, and libel laws are being applied in the work place, that it has become quite easy to say something that results in termination, sanctions or legal action.


A DIFFERENT GOAL FOR CLASS CLOWNS

Class clowns are often viewed as a disruption, a threat, a hassle. Here's a completely different outlook for you to consider. If a young person has the poise, spunk and interest in enlivening ordinary activities, that is not necessarily a bad thing.

If you can help the child control frequency, duration, timing and content, then that youngster may develop tremendously valuable skills using humor appropriately in the work place.

Dropout Prevention Strategies for the Real World

Dropout Prevention Strategies
for the Real World

 
 

 

We're Youth Change Workshops. It's our 18th birthday. Interestingly, 18 is about the age that students should be when they graduate from high school. Sadly, many students dropout well before graduating and turning 18.

Here are birthday-themed interventions that are inspirational and motivational methods to prevent students from dropping out of school before graduating. Hopefully these lively, effective dropout prevention strategies will help more of your students celebrate their 18th birthday with a graduation party and high school diploma.

 

Dropout Prevention Strategies

to Convince Students to Stay in School
 

A Blast From the Future

Ask students to read these headlines from their future birthdays, then discuss if they'll be ready. If you wish, you can use a computer graphics program like Photoshop to alter your local newspaper to actually contain the new date and headline. Include headlines like these:

  • 2011: Mandatory New Test Detects All Substance Use in Job Seekers
  • 2017: Total Automation of Homes Nears: Those With Poor Computer Skills Locked Out
  • 2020: All Jobs Now Require Diploma
  • 2028: Good Bye Cars: Excellent Science Skills Needed for Replacement Vehicles
  • 2033: Job Market Dismal: Near Perfect Attendance Required
  • 2037: Speak Just One Language? Can You Say "No Job"?

Just 'Cuz You Breathe

Have students make posters to illustrate this catch phrase: "Just 'cuz you breathe, doesn't mean you'll receive," then post the posters on the wall and discuss them.

If you preface this activity by giving a few stats on the value of a diploma, this activity can focus on graduation. For example, you can tell students that dropouts often earn too little to pay for a new car, an entire house or apartment, utilities, medical care, and transportation. Or, you can just provide the phrase and let students each choose their own focus.


20 Birthdays Later

Ask each students to write you an email as though it was 20 birthdays later. Ask them to describe their lives 2 decades worth of birthdays from today.

You may be amazed at the profound content you receive as students describe their imagined lives 20 years away. You may wish to save the letters to return to students years later. The long forgotten letters can become a blast from the past that transforms students in the future, but be sure to also use the letters now to discern the hopes and dreams of youngsters who appear to have no hopes and no dreams.

You may want to discuss the emails one-to-one or in groups, and include in the discussion how your site can assist the students to make their hoped-for futures actually happen. You can also save these emails to use whenever a student needs a boost of inspiration.


Can You Read Your Birthday Greetings?

To show students the increasing importance of education in the future, create birthday greetings that might come by email, then ask students to explain the email and say what they would do. To best implement this intervention, create actual emails that you email to students or print out for students to read.

Here are two examples to start you off. Although students may not spot it, both of these sample birthday emails are actually scams that could infect their computers, steal their identities, or otherwise do great harm. If students don't spot the scams, you might mention that education could help.

Happy Birthday. Your friends at electostuff.com have a free birthday gift of the latest game console system for you. It's valued at $239 in stores but free for you. Just click here and input your name, home address, phone number and answer a few more questions, and we will have your free game system to you in no time.
