Relevance

The proposal discusses common sense issues related to conflict resolution , life skills, self esteem and communication skills necessary for school success and beyond.

Brief Program Description

The purpose of this proposal is to describe how principals, counselors, and teachers can jointly plan and conduct an Mentor-Mentee Program that is wonderful in its simplicity and effectiveness.

Summary

We look for educational tools that encourage students to express themselves, gain confidence, and participate in and out of class. A simple thing, though has been missing from our school week: time build into the schedule for teachers and students to talk and work through activities that focus on developing our personal qualities. These ideas help all to face the every day challenge of finding the right combination of strategies to reinforce our teaching methods and support our personal and professional development.

Evidence

These proven ideas have been implemented in a number of school districts in West Virginia and North Carolina and practitioners comment that it does make a practical common sense difference related to school dropouts and discipline issues.
