This time our topic of the week is teaching behaviour and 1-to-1 mentoring.
This week, Paul covers a huge amount! After mentioning the concepts of ‘Ready, Respectful and Safe’ which he has been working on this week, we move on to the importance of self-reflection which needs to be actively taught to many pupils. It is not enough to assume pupils can ‘do’ self-reflection automatically.
Paul outlines the techniques used in a lot of Japanese schools known as ‘Naikan self-reflection’. The US site http://www.todoinstitute.org/naikan.html has full details of the scheme. The process relies on three questions:
- What have I received from other people?
- What have I given to other people?
- What troubles have I caused?
