									  Taking charge of your
anger & Getting along with
 your teachers and peers

    A mini-lesson by Mr. Hess
  Have you ever lost your temper?

• Give me some examples of when you got
  angry…
• Everyone gets angry. Maybe you "lose
  your cool" or "hit the roof." When kids are
  treated unfairly, anger can help them
  stand up for themselves. The hard part is
  learning what to do with these strong
  feelings.
           What is Anger?
• Anger is one of many different emotions
  we all have.
• Did you know it can be good to get angry
  sometimes?
• The important thing is how we handle our
  anger and how we express our feelings.
     What makes you angry?
• Maybe someone was picking on you
• Perhaps something didn’t go the way you
  had planned.
• Or maybe you just had a bad morning and
  someone pushed you over the limit.

• Give some examples of what can make
  you angry.
    How can you tell when you’re
              angry?
• Many times your body will tell you that you
  are getting angry…
• Can you think of a way your body might
  give you a clue that you are getting angry?

• The way you breathe, if your muscles are
  tight, your face may turn red
• All of these are signs your getting angry
  How can I tell if someone else is
              angry?
• They may become quiet and start to
  ignore you
• They may snap at you
• An angry person may stomp away or walk
  out of the room
• Are there any other ways you could tell
  someone is getting angry?
   What can I do if I am angry?
• Take some deep breaths
• Go for a walk to cool down
• Talk to an adult (A Teacher, Counselor, or even
  an older friend or mentor)
• Count to 10
• Do some sort of physical activity
• Draw a picture of your anger
• Put your headphones on and sing as loud as
  you can
          Just remember…
• Never getting angry is impossible. Instead,
  remember that how you act when you're
  angry can make the situation better or
  worse. Don't let anger be the boss of
  you. Take charge of it!
Getting along with you teachers
           and peers
  The benefits of getting along
• Makes class time more pleasant and
  enjoyable
• You learn more and will be more
  comfortable asking for help
• Your teacher will give you the “benefit of
  the doubt” more often
• Your classmates will not be distracted and
  y’all can focus on the lesson at hand
 What does “Getting along” mean?

• "Getting along" means you and your
  teacher have a way of communicating that
  works for both of you and you both are
  getting what you need from the
  relationship. From your teacher's
  perspective, he or she wants to make sure
  you are paying attention, being respectful
  and polite, and trying your best to learn.
   Can’t we all just get along?
• From your perspective, you want a teacher
  who is respectful to you, answers your
  questions, and tries to help you learn. You
  can get along and learn without being pals
  with your teacher, although it's nice if that
  happens.
What if you and your teacher don’t
            get along?
• Teachers and students sometimes have
  personality clashes
• If you show your teacher you want to
  make the situation better, he or she will
  probably do everything possible to make
  that happen. By handling a problem like
  this, you learn something about how to get
  along with people who are different from
  you.
   The “business relationship”
• Your relationship with a teacher is often
  your first chance to develop a "business
  relationship." Just like your parents have
  business relationships with the people
  they work with or the people who deliver
  the mail to your house, kids also can have
  these kinds of relationships. They are
  different from your family relationships and
  friendships, which are built on affection
  and love.
      The Business relationship
            continued…
• In a business relationship, both parties get
  something out of the relationship, but don't
  necessarily need to be good friends or like
  each other a lot. They simply need to
  respect one another, be polite, and stay
  focused on the job at hand. In other words,
  they need to "get down to business."
        Your “job” as a student
• Even if a certain teacher isn't your favorite, you
  can still have a successful relationship,
  especially if you fulfill your basic responsibilities
  as a student.
Here are some of those responsibilities:
• Attend class ready to learn.
• Be prepared for class with the right pencils,
  books, and completed assignments.
• Listen when your teacher is talking.
• Do your best, whether it's a classroom
  assignment, homework, or a test.
  “The most important single
  ingredient in the formula of
success is knowing how to get
      along with people.”
       -Teddy Roosevelt
