What I Can/Cannot Control? Bulletin Board Kit
This bulletin board kit gives the teacher an opportunity to display knowledge that students have gained from learning about what “control” means, understand what they can control, and what they can’t control, in their lives. This Bulletin Board offers review, interaction and continued reference and use throughout the year.
Many teachers/counselors take time to teach students about the difference between being able to control something in their lives, and not having control of something in their lives, how to tell the difference. It is an important skill so students know when they encounter a situation, they are able to understand if they can control things, or not.
Depending on the age of your students, actively involve them as much as possible in building this bulletin board. Having students respond, about how they recognize the difference between control and no control, and including their answers on the display gives them a sense that they have “control” of being part of their classroom.
After a lesson/or unit is taught about what control is, and how to recognize the difference between control and no control.
After teaching this very important skill, the subject isn’t “out” in the open, where it can be continually referenced in “teachable moments”.
This bulletin board keeps this skill in the forethought of student’s minds.
I would love to hear back from you how your experience with this bulletin board went, and feedback for a better quality product.
