We have begun our Social Filter Lessons. This is a big concept that involves many skills and self awareness. We focus and build upon this concept through out the school year.
Our social filter helps us gauge what to say or do based on what situation we are in or who we are talking to. This often takes explicit teaching, practice and time. Social situations shift & change which can be confusing for our students.
We will learn how to be mindful of our words and actions, learn strategies and techniques to say things that do not hurt others or give them red thoughts about us.
We must also learn when to tell the truth and how to be who we are without causing harm to others. Learning to think about others ( perspective taking), our selves and understanding others have the same feelings as we do is needed as well.
