Course Details

Teach your students Conflict Resolution with this simple method: Don’t be HOT and blow up, Don’t be COLD and give up… BeCool and in control!

Teasing is a common problem among adolescents. If not managed effectively, teasing may result in aggressive behavior, social withdrawal, and loss of self-esteem. Handled well, teasing can be a minor annoyance, which is easily stopped. This program presents four effective ways in which adolescents can cope with teasing: Ignore It, Laugh It Off, Change The Subject, Ask The Teaser To Stop.

BeCool teaches students about the three basic ways we respond to teasing: Aggressively (HOT), Passively (COLD) or Assertively (COOL). In each of the video scenarios, children are challenged by a difficult person or situation. Your students will watch as their video peers hesitate and then model three different ways to respond to conflict: Giving Up (COLD), Blowing Up (HOT) or Staying in Control (COOL).

Middle school students often take things personally. Not succumbing to teasing from peers is an essential survival skill for this age. In this module your students will see how not to let teasing get to them. Instead of reacting like a victim (COLD) or blowing up (HOT), your students will learn ways to be disarmingly cool. They will see ways to maintain their dignity and self-control even when faced with teasing. In the first lesson Tony’s classmates get on him about forgetting to zip up his pants. Public humiliation is by far every middle school student’s worse nightmare. Students will watch Tony quickly extinguish the teasing of friends through the use of BeCool techniques. Each vignette in this series portrays realistic situations featuring middle school-age students.

The BeCool Paradigm is research based and truly works.

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…
