I recently developed a program for ninth grade students. I'm Awesome, But I Have My Limitations
, which is a really nice highly interactive TV-game show style assembly program or workshop to acknowledge significant milestones for 9th graders.
recognizes students for all that they have accomplished thus far.
But I Have My Limitations
points out that students will have challenges ahead (as all students do) and suggests ways of coping with the challenges.
I recently presented the program to the entire 9th grade class at a Career and Technical High School in Rhode Island. The program was very successful. The abstract of the program follows at the end of this posting.
If you would like to see photos of some of the activities which are included in this programs, just check out the photo album
here on the Freshman Transition Network. Once you finish viewing the album press the "Go Back Arrow" key to return to this posting.
If you would be interested in a copy of the presentation just send me a message with your email address, the school in which you teach including address and telephone number and the subjects taught. Since I only distribute my presentations to teachers and other qualified professionals I will verify the information. As soon as I complete the verification, I'll send a copy to you (no charge). I could then consult with you on the telephone (no charge) on how to do the specific activities or I could prepare a customized presentation for your school(s) and do the presentations for you (I will do my best to make my presentations affordable for you even if your budget is limited!!! To date, I have always been successful in doing this.)
All of us are have tremendous potential. We have more abilities than we realize. All of us also have some real limitations… more than we realize. This presentation is designed for you, Ninth Grade Students at Your School, to :
* Recognize you for your accomplishments
* Equip you with some tools to help you stay safe and achieve your potential
* Illustrate some limitations which you (as well as many people) have.
I hope that today’s presentation will serve as a source of encouragement to you as you proceed through high school and continue on the journey of lifelong learning and you begin your career planning.
Thank you for coming and participating. I hope you will learn a great deal and have fun!!!
