This strategy (Bump, Hill, or Mountain?) has really helped me instill problem solving, self management, and emotional regulation within my students. Students will identify their problem as a bump, hill, or mountain, and then match their response to it. For example, a bump sized problem should NOT have a mountain sized reaction. If taught from the beginning, you can reinforce and come back to these 3 words throughout the year. Simply ask your students.. "Is this a bump?"... After enough practice, students should get the hang of what constitutes a bump-sized problem, a hill-sized problem, or a mountain-sized problem.
