Thinking About Others: Means to Be Considerate
One of the most important social skills children need to learn is how to behave in ways that help them forge connections to others. To be at ease among others and to give and receive emotional support requires the ability to imagine oneself in someone else‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚Äö√†√ª‚Äö√á¬®‚Äö√ë¬¢s place. This program defines the word ‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚Äö√†√ª‚Äö√†√∂‚àö¬µ‚Äö√†√∂‚àö¬Æconsiderate‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚Äö√†√ª‚Äö√á¬®‚àöœÄ as caring about how another person feels. Using age-appropriate scenarios to make and reinforce its points and a lively host to move the stories along, this program shows students positive ways to show consideration, such as treating others the way they would like to be treated and being helpful, even without being asked. It shows young children how being polite and helpful to others not only can help them get along better with others but also make them feel better about themselves. After viewing this program, students will recognize the difference between being considerate and inconsiderate; understand why it‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚Äö√†√ª‚Äö√á¬®‚Äö√ë¬¢s important for them to treat others as they would like to be treated; and learn that the best way to understand another‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚Äö√†√ª‚Äö√á¬®‚Äö√ë¬¢s feelings is to think about how they might feel in the same situation. Includes 12 reproducible student worksheets on CD.
