  12. 12. Standards have been set but the students are not acting as a team. NOW WHAT?!
  13. 13. Ms. Lee’s Famous “Family Meeting” <ul><li>Have students fill out a questionnaire and explain that they are not to put their names on it and it is to be confidential. It would be wise to have them go to a computer lab to do this and then print them out. This way they know their handwriting will not be identified. </li></ul><ul><li>Tell them to be completely honest about each question…. “things can’t be fixed if we don’t know what is broke” Make sure to remind them to not use other students names. </li></ul><ul><li>Give them ample time……do not rush them. </li></ul><ul><li>After students fill them out let them go on a break. </li></ul>
  14. 14. “ Family Meeting” Continued <ul><li>While students are on break go ahead and make a circle with their chairs. (Or just sit on floor) </li></ul><ul><li>Have students sit in circle and hand out one questionnaire to each student. (It is okay if they get their own) </li></ul><ul><li>You will explain that each student will take turns and read OUTLOUD the response to each question. Each question will be dealt with one at a time. </li></ul><ul><li>After the first question and all the responses have been read then leave time for students to respond. This is where you really need to keep it focused on the question and responses and not let it become an open forum to attack each other. </li></ul>
  15. 15. “ Family Meeting” Questions <ul><li>One of the most important aspects of dentistry is the concept of “TEAM”. Each one of you is a representative of the Dental Assisting Class - In your own words how do you feel your team is doing? </li></ul><ul><li>I don’t feel like the class is doing very well as a team. People in our class tend to partner up and be negative. </li></ul><ul><li>My team is very crabby! People are rude and cruel. </li></ul><ul><li>Some of our team is not respectful and shows little respect of others. </li></ul>
  16. 16. 2. Do you feel everyone is abiding to the “classroom guidelines” that you as a class developed? <ul><li>No I do not. Negative words and actions go on. Someone may end up losing their temper. </li></ul><ul><li>No not really we haven’t done a lot of the things that we had wrote. </li></ul><ul><li>No I feel that certain people act one way in front of the administration and another way when the administration is out of sight. </li></ul>
  17. 17. 3. If you answered no to #2-What guidelines are being broke and how do you feel about that? <ul><li>I know this may seem like a repetitive of the previous questions but it may give a student the opportunity to reevaluate what they are trying to get at. </li></ul><ul><li>I am very mad!! Some days I don’t want to go to school because I know someone is going to be hateful. </li></ul><ul><li>All of our guidelines are being broke and it makes me mad. The one I care about the most though is “treat other’s as equals”. Some people don’t abide by this and it’s very frustrating! </li></ul>
  18. 18. 4. Even though we live in a “free” country, do we really have the right to always express our opinion? <ul><li>Let students know that yes they have that right to their opinion but not the right to spew on each other. </li></ul><ul><li>No because some people could get really mad or upset and want to hurt you and you don’t want to be hurt. </li></ul><ul><li>No because if you work in an office w/someone everyday that you don’t get along with it’s really going to suck. It might be rude. You need to learn how to get along. </li></ul><ul><li>No because your opinion can be rude in how you say it and it can really hurt someone. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Maintaining control without overtaking meeting. <ul><li>Do not allow students to attack each other. </li></ul><ul><li>Know when to move on. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t feel uncomfortable if there are tears. Letting others see how they have hurt someone may bring repentance and repentance tears are always good. </li></ul><ul><li>Bring closure to meeting. WHAT HAPPENS IN THE MEETING……STAYS IN THE MEETING! </li></ul><ul><li>Have a burning, shredding or burial of family meeting papers and bring it to a close. </li></ul>
  20. 20. Remember…………….. It is all about relationship. The greatest compliment to receive is to be recognized, perhaps by a supervisor or a fellow employee, as having the ability to work harmoniously with others. If there is conflict in your classroom it doesn’t mean we fail, we only fail if we don’t teach them how to resolve.
