I teach at a K-8 school in rural southern Indiana. The kids at my school are basically great kids but they need a little help in the Character department. With so much emphasis being put on test scores, there is not much time nor resources left for the purpose of teaching our students about being good citizens. Parents are busy working long hours and teachers are busy preparing for the next assessment. I would like to use some of the time in my Health and FACS (formerly Home Ec) classes to teach our kids some old fashioned manners, respect and self control. I would love to have a series of videos that cover time management, popularity, solving conflicts, tolerance and dealing with anger. With all of the pressure our kids are under these days to succeed, they need the skills to manage their lives efficiently and with grace. These videos are geared for 5-9 grades and would be used in my 7 and 8 grade classes. All of the students and teachers in our school would benefit from these videos. Hopefully, the junior high students that watch these videos will become more responsible and develop into better role models for the elementary students in our school. The videos would be used for many years to come and by many, many students. Our kids deserve so much in the way of education and I don't believe it should stop with math and English. I feel my number one job as a health teacher is to help my students develop into self sufficient, well prepared, responsible citizens. With these videos, the kids will be able to see first hand how self sufficient, well prepared, responsible citizens behave. Thank you so much for any help anyone can give toward this cause. I have had other proposals funded and am deeply grateful for all of the donors that have decided to step up and help American's children. The set is actually a DVD set that can be found at the Human Relations Media website http://www.hrmvideo.com. The title of the series is Life Skills Series and it is # 476dv. Thanks again so very much.
