Today's podcast features the talents of Richard Parkhouse. Park is a regular presenter at CADA, education conferences and schools all over the country. Today Park shares with us an activity we call "The Card Game." In this game, kids learn what it is like to be popular vs. unpopular - and in learning this difference - how kids and teachers alike can then work to make a change in the school culture. Whether ending your year and reflecting on your activities or starting your year with a retreat or inservice, this is a great activity to get your kids and staff thinking about their roles and the impact that each of them can have at school. This lesson connects with CADA Standards under Communication (8. Interpersonal Skills); Citizenship (3. Service Learning); and Personal and Social Development (Interpersonal).
