What makes a 5th grader tick?
"What makes a 5th grader tick?" is an interactive web site designed to challenge intermediate elementary students to deal with personal issues in their lives. Some issues covered include the following: 1) Do I know why I am someone special? 2) Do I know what put-ups/put-downs are and how they make people feel? 3) Do I know how to express my anger without hurting others or myself? 4) Do I know how to be a good friend? 5) Do I know what peer pressure is? 6) Do I cooperate with others? 7) Do I know why it is important to talk about my feelings? 8) Do I know what I look for in a friend? 9) Am I truthful and honest? 10) Do I know what I need to work on?, and 11) Do I know what I value? With a professional therapist's help the team was able to open themselves up and discuss these and other questions in depth. A second survey was designed and administered by the team. Some of the issues covered in this survey included: the things the students enjoy, like, want, what they are good at, and what they love. Two quizzes are included on the web site to help visitors with their comprehension of the subject matter.
