Video of the Week: "Kid President is Over It"

It seems to me that the last year has been bombarded with examples of adults giving kids terrible examples of what it means to disagree with someone. Facebook, Twitter, and face-to-face conversations have been centered around the election, which often results in name-calling and mean things (both by candidates and members of society). As we approach inaugaration day, I think it's time we take a page out of the book of Kid President. 

Here are a few of the things I'm looking forward to discussing with my students this week:

  • What does it look like to treat people like they're human? 
  • Pause. Breathe. Love. --> What does this look like online and in person? What "tone" do we breathe with?
  • How can you encourage the adults in your life to pause. breathe. love.?
  • Do you think distraction is a good strategy? Why or why not? 
  • How do we respect our president and stand up for what we believe in if we disagree with him?
