What is the SafetySmart?

Now your students don’t have to learn safety the hard way. Using SafetySmart, students will learn social skills & ways of avoiding the hazards of daily life including safety for at home, work, and on the street.

The main theme of the SafetySmart Module is to present simple behaviors and practices that will keep people safe and unharmed in the home, on the job and on the street. Students are challenged to rethink common tendencies of everyday activities to become safer and smarter in their lives. In the home there are many dangers and hazards that are present. There are also ways to minimize these dangers and make the home a safe and comfortable place, which is the main reason people live in homes. By using the SafetySmart tips and common sense, students can remain safe and unharmed in their homes. On the street is where most people believe there is the most danger. Part of the reason is that we have little or no control over our surroundings and the people who we come into contact with while on the street. All of the SafetySmart skills presented for keeping your students safe on the street are centered on remaining alert and cautious about situations and people. SafetySmart also teaches students how to be safe when using public transportation and about the community services available in an emergency, as well as how and when to utilize these services.

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…
