E-Colors in Education
Every School. Every Nation.
Southwest Schools - Archway Academy
Teacher Shawn Ceppi (Y/B) wrote: "At Archway Academy we frequently incorporate E-Colors activities in our lesson plans. Here are some pictures of students engaging in the 'Listen UP' activity. One student draws a card about a controversial issue and has to speak his or her opinion on it for 3 minutes. The listener is not allowed to speak at all during this 3-minute period. Then, the listener must summarize what the speaker said."
Ms. Ceppi added, "It was enlightening to observe the different E-Colors working together, especially the Reds and Yellows. For instance, one pair of students, who were red/yellow and yellow/blue, observed how difficult it was for the yellow/blue to keep from interrupting the red/yellow during their speech. In turn, the red/yellow summarized very quickly and spoke less during his partner's speech."
E-Colors and Personal Intervention are a process. E-Colors gives an individual the opportunity to identify triggers and learn techniques to help manage behaviors
that can prevent us from realizing our potential as individuals and as a classmate. Personal Intervention provides practical applications for making conscious
decisions, based on managing and leveraging the knowledge of reaction versus response.
