I am the counselor at a newly formed Early College High School. Our students are located on a Community College Campus and will receive a high school diploma and an Associate Degree in 5 years. My dilemma is that I have only been in the school system 2 years. I worked in the manufacturing sector for 30 years. My education did not prepare me for real life. Students are very disrespectful and talk to you as if you were one of their peers. I am trying to do character ed with them. I am looking for activities that will allow them to participate rather than readings etc. They seem to cooperate when they are engaged in an activitiy. I would appreciate any help with activities or any advice anyone has to give.
