To Help Students Learn, Appeal to What They Value

To Help Students Learn, Appeal to What They Value | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

To know why it is important to understand what students value, I encourage everyone to reflect on how they feel -- and perform -- when a school leader knows and acts on what is important to team members.

Now think about when a leader ignores or disrespects team and individual values. How does it affect performance?

I have learned this: discovering and appealing to what students value has the power of a "return on investment" of their eagerly engaging in and owning their learning. And that is the pedagogical gold ring.

Have Students Create Their End-of-Year Legacy Now

Have Students Create Their End-of-Year Legacy Now | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Inviting students to write their end-of-year legacy at the start of the school year is one of the most powerful and efficient social-emotional and character development (SECD) interventions you can do for students, grades 5-12. First, you get to teach them about the concept of "legacy," and "reputation." You get to introduce them to the idea of being a person of character and deciding what kind of character they would like to have. Second, you start a conversation about character and accomplishment in the classroom, as kids can share their legacy statements and then you can raise the question, how can you support each other in accomplishing these important goals?

Ariana Amorim's insight:

These tips are suitable  for coaching children and/or for academic coaching.

Our House Feels Different! 5 Things Mums Love About Coaching | Life Coaching with Lisa Parkes | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Smiley Coach Lisa Parkes explains why coaching for children works wonders for the whole family and doesn't have to be intense, painful or expensive.

 

"Child Coaching supports the modern day parent who wants the best for their child.  It is not a quick fix or counselling.  In fact The Daily Mail recently wrote about how support for families and children is moving forward as we learn more about how children develop and what they need in order to be happy confident human beings."

Minarni Tirta's curator insight, July 1, 2013 7:33 PM

EQ really rocks! its presence is subtle but the result is real! To illustrate this :I was looking for my friend in one of those employment agencies when the scenario unfold.Later, I found out a little bit more about  " the offender" as I felt so sorry for her and chatted with her. Apparently 'the offender' is a trainer but was unfortunately finding it hard to land herself a job in the new land she just came to. She was 'enrolled' in one of the government's employment agencies, which was supposed to help her find a job ( by sending her CV to reverse marketers, setting up seminars for her to attend - on revamping CV and tailoring her cover letter to the job she is applying.) She was glad as these means she will also find new friends. One day she said she made a pact with her new found friends to practice one of her tools that she uses in her coaching/ training business. She was practicing one of her tools in one of the rooms in that organisation, when someone came up to her asked her what she was doing ( as it seemed to the untrained eyes, she was playing a board game but once she explained it, that someone told her that she needed to book the room first. So she duly waited for the manager and put what she was doing on hold. The way the manager came  & told the "offender" that was definitely not fitting what I expect of a manager. ( this was the part where I  actually the witnessed) I looked at the unfolding scenario with a sense of disbelieved.  While the manager maybe correct (all organisations have in place their rules and regulations), the way 'the offender' was being handled was really demeaning and lacking of respect.  Instead of saying "I am sorry but this place is strictly for job searching only and you will need to practice elsewhere"( or something along the line) , she came up with words that were quite hurtful and the attitude was one of " I am the rule here, follow or out". what makes it worse was the fact it was on the public domain part of the organisation.Undoubtedly 'the offender' reacted in ways fished out by the manager heavy handling of her(she later told me) . She felt like a criminal and at any one time, there were 2 people ( the manager and another sturdy man, next to the manager, ever ready to bounce her from the organisation).

 

understandably the manager has to be firm and stern as some of the unemployed probably already demoralized and not themselves, can be insensitive or even unreasonable, but I wonder at the same time, if the manager was also proactively looking for that kind of behaviour by the way she handled the 'offender'?

ALL jobs need EQ, but especailly so with jobs that connect you with others and jobs that need you to built human relationship, having human touch. With EQ tools we will be able to diffuse the situation in a better way. Like everything else EQ gets better with more practice. so kids and EQ is definitely a good idea, no, It is a great idea! and it is definitely "TAUGHTABLE!" ( did I just coined a new word?):)

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, July 3, 2013 7:49 PM

"At a recent congressional hearing, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan agreed with Shriver’s positive assessment of SEL’s potential. "These are learned skills," he said. "Children can have huge challenges, but when you help them learn how to handle them, you have a chance … If we are not addressing this, we're not in the game."

John Michel's curator insight, July 4, 2013 10:55 AM

Empowering students with tools and techniques to calm themselves, observe the world, and exert positive pressure on their environments reduces the distraction caused by inner and outer turmoil, freeing kids up to concentrate more effectively on the rest of what they are learning. In this way, SEL not only helps enhance students’ emotional wellbeing and maturity but also improves their academic achievement.

Self-Compassion for Freshmen

Self-Compassion for Freshmen | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
A recent study suggests that when new college students are kind to themselves, they're less likely to suffer from homesickness.
Ariana Amorim's insight:

"According to Kristin Neff, a University of Texas psychologist and author of the 2011 book Self-Compassion, the three features of self-compassion are kindness toward oneself, a sense of common humanity with others, and mindfulness—that is, awareness and acceptance of your own feelings. Her research has found that each of these components buffer people against negative reactions to undesired events, like failure, humiliation, and rejection—all situations that are pretty common during the first year of college."

The fear of failure is something we all struggle with. It’s a battle that begins at a young age, and it’s one that will probably last a lifetime.

Every time we move to a new destination, I sit down with my family and we have a team coaching session. Questions include: What did you enjoy about our stay here? What are you looking forward to in the new place? We also made vision boards, hold regular family meetings and have a weekly planner on our fridge, where every member of the family can ‘post’ what activity he/she would like to engage in in the coming week. I also use coaching techniques with our daughter and evaluate her school results based on her goals and strengths, a different approach from most parents. What do you take home from work?

“No Means Think Bigger!” - The 3 kinds of setbacks and how to respond

“No Means Think Bigger!” - The 3 kinds of setbacks and how to respond | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

 

 You know the feeling when you have something in mind you really want to achieve and it seems so close, yet something gets in the way?

 

It happens all of the time with high school students as they try to get good grades or pursuing their passions. It also happens when you are a Life Coach for teens, as you build your practice and sustain the work.

 

Parents know all too well that the journey between successes, with setbacks and disappointments along the way, causes frustration. 

 

As a Life Coach working with teens, I’ve been fortunate to see an insider’s point-of-view from all three of these perspectives and pinpointed a few patterns in how people approach setbacks. It turns out that the initial assumption about the nature of the setback - whether it is permanent, temporary, or systematic - matters a great deal. It matters because the assumption drives our response.
