Activities to engage with young people to improve attendance, time management, study skills, positive thinking, conflict resolution and anger management. Engaging with young people as a mentor can be difficult but Stephanie George draws on years of experience to provide tried and tested activities that will help. The activities provide specific structured tasks that can be used during mentoring meetings and to support mentoring intervention. The activities will build rapport, provide evidence of progress through assessment and cover specific issues such as improving attendance, time management, study skills, how to think more positively, conflict resolution and anger management. The mentoring activities include: • Building rapport with a student • Giving students a baseline for improvement • Initial self-assessment • Student re-assessment and evaluation • Target setting and action planning • Show me the difference• Improving attendance• Let me tell you a story• What if • The treasure hunt • Sunshine thinking• I remember when… it happened to me • Students create a story that looks at issues of conflict and reconciliation • Conflict • I’m seeing red – How to recognise the initial signs of anger and identify ways of diffusing it. • Stop seeing red – Strategies for coping with highly charged emotional situations • It’s about time – Managing study time effectively • A place to study – Creating a positive environment for successful study. Each activity is mapped specifically against Ofsted Spiritual Moral Social and Cultural (SMSC) Development Criteria (Ofsted Evaluation Framework September 2012 onwards), and the SMSC criteria applicable are indicated. The activities, once complete, will provide you with evidence of work with students that is demonstrable to them and other stakeholders. This book is an essential tool for learning mentors, behaviour mentors, inclusion teams and SEN teams. 82 page A4 ring bound book
