In Wellness, we continue our discussion of respect issues. This week we discussed communication skills.  We looked at the different ways that we can be respectful when we speak to and listen to others. Next we looked at bullying as an example of disrespectful behavior. We discussed different types of bullying as well as strategies to deal with it. Students were able to identify adults both at school and outside of school who they can communicate with about bullying. We discussed the use of appropriate strategies to stop bullying as well as the importance of intervention for the person who is doing the bullying.

Our next unit in Wellness concentrates on  social health.   We begin by discussing the  different types of respect(respect for other’s ideas, respect for feelings, respect for rules, respect for differences and self-respect).  We next look at proper communication in relationships with others, including speaking and listening skills. Then we look at  behavior that is not respectful and focus on bullying.  We look at different forms of bullying, why someone might bully and what are some ways to deal with the situation.  In small groups, students will compose a Public Service Announcement(PSA) on the topic of bullying.
