Relevance

Humanity in the Black...Understanding the Strategy of Risk Producing Machines relates to social and emotional health by investigating the various distractions, barriers, and pipelines to prison that many young people are faced with. Participants will examine how these entities affect the self-respect and self-love students need in order to maintain their focus during their academic journey. This presentation will examine words used to categorize and label students for the purpose of the dehumanizing machine.

Once the risk producing machines are identified, students will be able to understand the purpose of the distractions weaponized against them and effectively create a personal code of conduct that will counter the assault on their humanity. This code of conduct will support the strand of mental and physical health because the stress level raised by confusion and disrespect produced by the machine will decrease tremendously due to student awareness of the traps set in schools systems and surrounding environments. Students will understand that self-respect and self-love play a very important role of their human development. The code of conduct provided at this presentation will equip them with the tools to protect their passions while simultaneously building their futures.

Brief Program Description

This presentation will inform participants on the importance of thought, speech, and action required to increase the academic and social health of students who may be considered at risk in their academic settings. The systems educators are exposed to often handicap their ability to support students in the most effective manner. Words are tools that are used to either build a future for a student, or break them down to obedient products of society. The key concepts of this presentation include:

Self-Respect

Self-Discpline

Clear Communication

Courage

Summary

Mr. Pugh will challenge and entertain you with a thought-provoking critique of the “mind games” played 
in academic settings suggesting inadequacies in students. Participants will learn how society has consistently informed students of the importance of a “good” education, so they would be accepted in 
the general public. What many don’t realize is that “school is a sport” that is directly related to our self-worth as a human being, and many people develop a thought process that often mimics societal norms
 and expectations. After this presentation, participants will be able to understand the difference between school and education and identify ways to empower themselves through everyday life challenges inside and outside of the school setting.

Evidence

Evidence of this investigation will be posted at a later date.
