Description

 – Strategies for Managing Anger at School

Most of us find ourselves having to deal with anger in the classroom at some time or other. Keep Cool provides teachers with practical guidance and strategies for helping students to understand what anger is, where it comes from and how to deal with it. It focuses on assisting students to develop a repertoire of responses for managing feelings of anger before they get out of control.

Students will learn to understand what triggers anger and also to understand that they can make choices about how to respond when they feel angry. They will develop an understanding of the difference between ‘good’ anger and ‘bad’ anger; learn to pay attention to the physiological and psychological processes they undergo at the point of becoming angry; and learn skills to calm themselves down.

The material in Keep Cool! can be used:

  • With all students as part of the health curriculum
  • By specialist staff such as guidance counsellors, or behaviour support workers on an individual basis with at-risk students
  • In peer-tutoring schemes using senior students in life skills classes with at-risk juniors
  • With small groups of at-risk students working with a teacher aide
  • By parents or caregivers working with their children in the home

Each section contains comprehensive background notes for teachers and a range of supporting activity sheets for students.
