Video 1: Getting a Bad Grade

Liz learns how to handle it when she gets a bad grade

We had many requests for a video about how to stay composed if you receive a bad grade. Here we show what the freak out looks like and how it affects the people around you. Then we show Liz using some strategies to calm down and handle this problem. I love how devastated our actress looks in this shot, she just nails it! We really have a ton of fun filming these videos if you couldn’t tell.

Video 2: Not Asking for Help

Mike learns how to ease his frustration when he asks for some help!

This was another request video that we wanted to make. I certainly had students as well who would wait and wait until they were upset rather than initiate and ask for help. We try to focus on the problem solving skill of making the problem smaller rather then bigger. In this picture Mike is doing the opposite and lets the problem blow up!

Video 3: Shifting the Conversation Topic

Our animations help teach that we ride out one topic in a convo, like surfers riding a wave. If we jump to a new topic or "wave" we can confuse others!

This is another video that features animations. We are just so excited to show everyone these! The video uses the analogy of surfers riding a wave to teach that in conversations we ride out one topic. If we jump to another topic too soon, it’s like the surfer jumping to a new wave too early. We’re really hoping the students enjoy watching the animations and that the visuals help their understanding of some of the more complex topics.

Video 4: Social Short: Working in Groups

We teach the steps of working together on a group project!

Working in Groups is another one of our social shorts. As you could guess it’s shorter than the usual videos and gives the steps in a strait forward manner. We see the step then we see the kids model it. These are nice to use for shorter sessions or in addition to other videos.

Well those are the new ones for April! As always feel free to contact us with any comments or ideas for new videos. We’d especially like to know what you think about the animations and social shorts!
