Course Details
Teach Conflict Resolution to your students with the three choices they have in responding to both fair and unfair criticism… HOT, COLD, and COOL!

Dealing with criticism is a challenging experience for most people and can be especially difficult for younger students. If not handled effectively, criticism will impede improvements in performance, diminish self-esteem and lead to aggressive behavior or social withdrawal. Handled well, criticism can promote learning, improve performance, and enhance self-confidence. This module presents effective ways in which young children can cope with criticism.

BeCool teaches students about the three basic ways we respond to criticism: 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).

The Coping with Criticism module will help you teach your students the negative consequences of reacting like a victim or responding like a hothead when being criticized. Your students will then see the benefits of acting assertively cool. They will see Connor modeling how to react to fair criticism and see Diane respond assertively to unclear criticism. They will also see how being HOT or COLD can make a situation worse.

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…
