February Transitions



Monthly Theme: Assertiveness
The focus for this month is on Assertiveness which translates to being able to express their wants, needs, and thoughts even when it is difficult and being able to respect what others want, need, and think even when it is difficult. 

Some of the lessons this month will be a continuation of our communication skills by looking at ways to present ourselves and communicate our needs without letting people take advantage of us or by taking advantage of others. At the freshman level it will be about looking at the differences between passive, assertive, and aggressive behavior with a focus in school environments. At the sophomore and junior level there will be a focus on the work environment with applying these concepts to writing resumes, cover letters, and interviews. At the senior level it is a focus on how to present yourself to colleges and employers to set yourself apart.
