Classroom Guidance Lessons

Florida CHOICES

Mrs. Holzum will be teaching eighth grade students the in Florida’s CHOICES career education program in our Digital Dawg Lab to complete the career components of our curriculum during the month of January.

 

Mrs. Pinsky will teach in early January to all 6th grade students the styles of conflict resolution and a variety of tools to use to resolve conflict.  No single strategy will work all the time with every person in every situation, so we need to know and use a variety of options to use when disagreeing with others so that conflict doesn’t result in misunderstandings, lost friendships, or aggressive outcomes.   Conflict Lesson for 6th Grade Powerpoint.
