For Teachers

Points to Consider - Pt 2

This clip is the second of two clips in which Linda Carter, a school counsellor, talks about points to consider when using Speaking from Experience resources with students. She talks about supporting students within the class who have, or who are affected by, the illness or situation relevant to the clip. Her suggestions include: informing school counsellors and other relevant people before the class; offering affected students a preview of the clip before the class and 'exit strategies' on the day it is shown; and carefully monitoring of all students' reactions on that day and in the following weeks. Further teacher support is available by selecting the 'Notes' tab.
