Capturing Kids' Hearts
Behave In/ Behave Out
If you have a child's heart, you have his head." -Flip Flippen
Why Capturing Kid's Hearts
Primary focus is to develop healthy relationships

The mission is to win their hearts and lead them to their personal best

You must capture a Kid's heart to get to his head. If that's not where you start, Please do another job instead. Kids must know you to be true. And the key to that is without a doubt...

Did you Know....
_________% of every message communicated through the use of body language.

_________% of a message is communicated through your tone of voice.

_________% of a message is communicated by your words.
What are we communicating to students?
Open-Ended Questions
What Else Have You Tried?
...and then what happened
What happened next?
That's interesting, can you tell me more?
What do you think about....?
What is the hardest part about...?
How are you thinking about solving that?
I love hearing the details, can you tell me more?
Key Step: Build Atmosphere of Trust where students "feel free to fail while going through learning process.
What did we do and discuss today?

What is its relevance to you, both now and for your future?

How are you going to use these skills before our next class?

What will result if you don't use these skills?

What will result if you do use these skills?
Building and Implementing the Social Contract
Create Buy-In for the Social Contract
Leader must "sell" the contract...

"How many of you get tired of your teachers nagging you and telling you what to do?
"Well, I am not going to do that because you are big."
"This is your class, so you are going to decide how we treat each other."
The best part is that if you help each other, and I don't have to get involved, there will be no consequences!"
Build the Social Contract
Put four to five students in group
Each member is assigned following roles: facilitator, scribe, spokesperson, timekeeper, on-task person, and affirmer
Give each group the four questions...After they answer the questions reconvene class and discuss
Teacher provides flip chart, markers, and has a volunteer scribe for class
Ask spokesperson from each team to read question and read their list without explanation
Scribe list words on class social contract
Choose one word after each group's turn to process with the group...."How is that going to look in here?"
Ask a "What if" question if needed
Ask scribe to place check mark by exact words or synonyms and to add any new words to the contract
Elements of the Social Contract
3 things needed for social contract to effective...Effort, Listening, No Put Downs

Teach 3 nonverbal signs for all contracts...
A. Signal leader uses with group
B. Signal group uses with each other
C. Signal for put-downs
Implementating the Contract
Have students help create and then sign the contract

Remind them that choices have consequences

Visit the contract at least once a week

When you see someone using non-verbal sign, stop and affirm them.

Ask students for feedback after a week of using the contract
Signal for Put-Downs

1. If it is called, it counts
2. It's not a "toy"-don't joke around, don't play with it
3. Someone can call a foul for someone else
4. If a foul is called, no explanation is needed
Violation of Contract...Address the class by calling timeout, asking:
1. "What is happening here?"
2. "What did we say we would do to help each other?"
3. "Everyone show me the sign."
4. "Are you willing to do that?"
5. "Great!!!"
A Successful Social Contract = a self-managing group!
No Meaningful Relationship with an Appropriate Adult
Ask only given questions
No lecturing before, during, or after questions
Don't move to next question till you get an appropriate answer to the question you are asking.
Don't fall for smoke screens or bail them out by giving them the answer or part of the answer.
