Chapter 2 focuses on pedestrian safety and teaches defensive walking as well as how to avoid being followed. Chapter 3 concentrates on safety when taking public transportation. Attention is paid not only to using bus and subway timetables, but also to smart self-protection strategies.

SafetySmart 2 concentrates on emergency situations. Chapter 4 teaches individuals how to call 911 when police, fire and ambulance assistance is needed. Chapter 5 teaches basic “how to” skills for dealing with police and other civic authority figures in an emergency. Chapter 6 advises viewers how to recognize when medical care is needed and next-steps including self-care and ambulance/hospital procedures.

My students were glued to the screen. Love Stanfield’s humor. This is the way to teach social skills.

Using Humor to Teach Social Skills

Humor = Retention

We believe you learn best when you laugh. By making the classroom experience more comfortable and enjoyable, humor can make teaching and learning more effective, especially for the K12 segment. At Stanfield, we use humor as an integral part of our curricula.

If you as a speaker don’t help your audience to remember your lessons, then you’re wasting everyone’s time. Humor… can help accomplish that needed retention…
