This Back to School Connecting Unit has 6 Step by Step lessons, Discussion prompts and questions, activities, group work, and interactive lessons. It is designed for your students to gain a better understanding of what it means “to be connected” to each other. This is the first of a series on Character Education.

Stay tuned for the next ones coming soon on Self Respect, Encouraging, Trusting and more.

Included in the unit is an explanation of Family Meetings, aka Morning Meetings. When you are a class for 10 ½ months, you become a family. Families talk to each other and listen to each other. Family Meetings are a time where students and the teacher come together and make decisions, choices and talk about difficult issues together. These “Connecting” lessons are designed to be done within the Family Meeting environment, but can also be taught as a lesson.
