Teaching Students About Why Being Nice Is Important
It is often said that a nice guy always finishes last, but is this true? Many studies have been conducted into whether men or women are really more likely to finish first. While the results may vary according to different types of study, there are some generalizations about who is actually the most likely to “win” a nice guy/girl card game.
According to several studies, students who are given high-quality and frequent feedback tend to learn faster, have better test scores, and do better at their classes than those who are not. In addition, students who are given consistent positive feedback, that is, praise, reinforcement, and peer support are able to apply this information and apply it in various settings. This type of social exchange promotes learning and encourages students to use quality standards for themselves, as well as others. They also tend to be high-quality leaders who can contribute meaningfully to society.
When looking at which lesson needs to be taught with social care, the results are almost always the same: sharing. In other words, students need to be encouraged and supported to express their needs and desires with people they will be in contact with every day. Sharing is not only applicable in interpersonal relationships, but it also applies in educational settings. Teachers must give students meaningful opportunities to apply what they have learned in lessons. They can’t do this by just giving them a cookie cutter lesson plan, telling them to read the same material over again, and expect the same results.
To share what they have learned in lessons, students need to be engaged in activities that they enjoy. If they are forced to take a boring lesson plan with no input from the student, or if they are forced to listen to boring lectures with no enjoyment, they won’t apply what they have learned in lessons. Those involved in quality standards education should be aware of this possibility. By teaching students to get involved in activities that they find interesting, students will be more likely to learn and apply what they have been taught in class. This applies not only to public health and social care services, but also to career planning, communication skills, and much more.
The second part of quality standards education, teaching students about why being a nice person is important as well. A good way to make sure that students understand the importance of being a nice person is to hold a “niceness assessment” session with each student before each school year begins. That way, teachers can get an accurate picture of how students see themselves in different situations. After each assessment, then teachers can design appropriate interventions and lesson plans based on the results of the assessment. Overall, holding a “niceness assessment” is very valuable for quality standards guidance and for the development of curriculum and lesson plans. NCCSC now holds several quality standards assessment workshops for schools to help educators understand how students learn and how teachers can improve their classroom practices.
In the end, being a nice person is worth its weight in gold. Being nice can help you avoid conflict, and even win some brownie points with your peers! But it isn’t worth wasting time worrying about whether or not you are being nice when you don’t need to be. Public sector employers are well aware that the key to cost effectiveness is to select cost effective treatments instead of treating diseases or conditions with traditional approaches. Public health professionals must therefore work to develop new strategies to promote healthier lifestyles through education, prevention, and treatment.
