Sam commented on Let students define what they want to change

Hi Elsa,
I remember hearing from a teacher friend that they were encouraging children to own their emotions and be part of creating the solution when they were caught up in arguments / disagreements with their peers - as part of mediation. But I think it could work in a wider sense too. As for implementation, it'd be nice to offer a 'free wall' that any student could attach a post-it to. I guess then you need a process for creating mini-teams from those who have added to the wall to look at creating solutions to some of the issues raised. Basically a physical version of what is happening here on teacher's guild, but owned by students. It'd be amazing to change the theme too regularly. For example, students could use it one week to talk about who they look up to (who inspires them).
