This curriculum framing is very useful. Question, are these themes articulated to the students within each subject?
Karina Wyllie
44:52
Will there be any work & content focused on the use & effects of SOCIAL MEDIA on our children?
Ingrid Mesa Gibbons
46:14
Do all the seniors participate in workshops or only those who sign up to be mentors to freshmen?

very thoughtful. thank you! Question: How does this part of the Promise apply to student with special needs, especially in self contained classes. Is there a modified version?

It would be great if the MS Advisory office could post the videos and the relevant DBT lessons
Tom Viviano
48:59
I am developing modified versions of this content to be able to push into the special classes in the HS!
Karina Wyllie
49:50
if jillian turns her video OFF her internet connection might work better
Tricia Murray
49:52
We do a modified version in the ES special classes also

All this is great. BUT if there is bullying behavior then no amount of distress tolerance or emotional regulation will ultimately help. AND I would encourage people not to use screens to emotionally regulate children. For my own kids, this (screens, over time) actually worsens their ability to emotionally regulate.
James Wilmott

please send this out to this group
Joyce Vastola
50:25
We also have a version for the Elementary School Special Classes
Tom Viviano
50:31
I’m so sorry everyone, but I also have to join a Fordham class that I teach this evening, please reach out to me with any questions, concerns, or ideas!

A key aspect of mindfulness is intentionality and social media use gets addressed thoroughly in middle school.
Leah Parks
51:59
I would like to second what was just stated by Elissa foray
Leah Parks
53:10
there is a lot of research on how screens deregulate emotions. I’d like to know how the school is considering this research, especially for the ES students and the increase in use of technology in our classrooms

Bullying happens on the playground, as well. Avoidance of this needs to be taught early on. Now. Preschool. This week, at the Sagamore Playground, my girls were told by a bunch of elementary boys “Boys go to college to get more knowledge, Girls to go Jupiter to get more stupider.” I wasn’t there - they were with my nanny who was not aware. My two girls were EXTREMELY upset by this. My husband and I are both MDs - they do not distinguish between smarts. They do need mindfulness. But more than that, they need those kids (mostly boys) to NOT SAY THINGS LIKE THAT and to be emotionally safe.

*between women and men/boys and girls re: being smart.

What material is being used to introduce social justice concepts?
Tricia Murray
58:56
In the Elementary School, we are using "Being the change" by Sarah Ahmed for our diversity, equity and inclusion lessons
Jennifer Hommeyer
01:01:52
we are seeing/hearing concerns about 1) social media and 2) bullying and are working to bring in programming for both topics. these are great recommendations.
Juan Diaz
01:02:48
Love all the DE&I work being included - how can we sign up for the Be Well committee?
Philip Murphy
01:03:34
I would definitely incorporate social media curriculum sooner than middle school. Remote learning and remote friendships has led to far greater technical proficiency than I had imagined in elementary school. Over all it's a good thing, but there are some negative side effects.
elissafory
01:03:44
I second Philip Murphy.
Tricia Murray
01:04:22
We start it in fifth grade with our "How to Unmake a Bully" program
elissafory
01:04:26
And much better to prevent the biases than address them in middle school
Joyce Vastola
01:04:49
We incorporate social media into interpersonal effectiveness.. I do appreciate your suggestions and we look to how we can do more
elissafory
01:04:58
Overall though this is an AMAZING conversation. So amazing that the school is having this conversation AT ALL.
Karina Wyllie
01:05:12
agree with all this but lets NOT FORGET education starts at home 🙏🏼💚
Karina Wyllie
01:06:15
specially about these topics : bullying, inclusiveness, kindness, acceptance, biases, racism, etc
Sharon
01:07:30
Regarding social media, I highly recommend The Social Dilemma on Netflix… worth the 90 minutes
Juan Diaz
01:07:51
agreed
Vanessa O'Friel
01:07:51
It’s also the “subtle bullying” - like becoming friends “ironically” with kids who are not athletic and then making fun of them
Karina Wyllie
01:07:53
yes social dilema!!! its a GREAT documentary
Joyce Vastola
01:08:00
The Social Dilemma is excellent.. scarey
elissafory
01:08:04
Yes! Social Dilemma!
