Do Our Schools Have Anger Issues?
Let’s look at the facts:
* 46% of our male students and 26% of our female students report that they have been in physical fights.
* 74% of Teachers report a low understanding the physiological importance and the effect of anger in our bodies/brains is the key to better behavioural choices.
* 60-70% of our students view their anger as a “bad part of them”.
These statistics add up to an anger epidemic in our schools. And while we may recognise that this warrants addressing, the big problem is what we do
about it and where do we begin.
Well, here’s where our FREE Webinar ‘Succeeding with Angry & Aggressive Students’ steps in!
Through your participation on October 16th 2014 at 3.30pm (AEDT) you will:
Develop strategies for discussing and teaching about anger.
Establish key understandings of how to train students to think and act BEFORE their anger turns to aggression.
Learn about “The Anger Rules” that students can easily adopt and follow.
Access a set of resources to assist you in dealing with this highly difficult and emotive aspect of contemporary teaching.
