‘Trustworthiness: A Building Block of Friendship‘
– Jill W Tomey
If you look at the “I wills” for being trustworthy, you are looking at the definition of what would make a good friend. It’s about following through on promises, honoring secrets, telling the truth, and being your best and proactive. These are the activities that bond two people or a group together.
Teambuilding activities help to connect students to one another and may also give the teacher some insight into what motivates each student. Creating a community within the classroom and the school is a key bully prevention strategy. Teaching students to value one another and feel connected to each other will create a trustworthy environment where students will care for each other.
This month, focus on trustworthiness to build up relationships.
