In Their Own Words

Sometimes when you don't think teenagers are listening or that they just "don't get it", you get a pleasant reminder that indeed they are.

A strong peer message. (It might be a bit hard to read due to camera flash but check it out).........



A couple weeks back an orange laminated sign, with the words "Student Messages" written at the top, showed up in a display case outside my class. Later in the day I noticed what one student had posted on it. A strong peer message. Yes, they do listen. Hanging around outside a class instead of bettering yourself inside a class is definitely not cool.

How I wish some of my Grade 9 students would read and comprehend the same message before they have ditched every last chance to receive a passing grade in all subjects! Tell your students that their brave stand was noticed all the way over in sweden!
