GCSD PARENTS: Will This Video Do The Trick?

  
Proper Hallway Behavior ~~ This video displays all sorts of poor behavior students are asked to identify. The focus is on what they are doing wrong. Why not make this a learning experience and ask students to identify those who are behaving properly and explain why it is the preferred choice?

SCATS ~~ Let's see. It's not appropriate to hug in the hallway but the person who tries to shut someone else inside a locker isn't mentioned ... hmmm ... I give this video  a failing grade!

What a joke. With all the psychologists and counselors Greece employs, you'd think they'd consult one before making this video. Can't help wondering how much was wasted on useless stuff like this.

Is this what we are paying Achramovitch $200,000+ to produce?

To 5:55PM ~~ I didn't realize it until I made a second visit to the website that there are actually TWO videos. One shows "proper" behavior. I guess I was too disturbed to notice it after viewing the one showing inappropriate behavior -- because that one failed to point out activities which are clearly unacceptable based on GCSD policy!! Our Supt. can't be paid too much, right? We're really getting our money's worth with Steve Achramovitch ;)

I wonder if the "talent" discovered by our broadcasting classes produced these ...?

To 10:46AM ~~ I'm wondering if they are ALL teachers in that video ... ? I find this video to be so far off the mark that I think it's a wonderful example of the pot calling the kettle black as it relates to teachers, administrators, BOE etc. who blame parents for poor student behavior in the buildings. Our educators don't completely label all of the inappropriate activities, thereby leaving the lesson untaught and the message garbled.
