There are a number of students in my GCSE class that have behavioural issues and if they feel uncomfortable they can do anything from storm out of the classroom to throwing chairs and punching their tables. They’re great kids, they just dont always see the light at the end of the tunnel and when they are in stressful situations they dont know what to do other than lash out sometimes. They are 10 months away from their final exams and the pressure is being mounted on them in every aspect of their school lives.
Last week one of the students saw me making little origami stars. Its something I do when I’m feeling anxious to help me focus on something else. He asked if I could show him how to make them. He had been clenching his fists all lesson, which I’ve noticed is a tell that he is struggling to retain composure. I gave him a strip of paper and talked it through with him. Soon half of the class were asking me to show them. They all picked it up really quickly.
After about five minutes and about 8 stars later, the student sat back down and was in a much calmer and motivated mood for the rest of the lesson. Our next lesson I placed a box of paper strips on my desk and when I saw anyone getting worked up about their work I silently placed a strip in front of them and let them get on with it. The lesson after I was amazed to see that students would go up to the box of their own accord, pick up a few strips and head back to their desks to continue working after calming down.
Yesterday I brought a large jar into the classroom and placed my anxiety stars in there. The boys put their strsss stars in there too. When they fill the jar I’m going to bring sweets into the lesson to celebrate them working hard and working through their problems in a positive manner. I know I’m not the teacher they deserve just yet but I feel like I’ve made a big breakthrough with them.

art therapy is important.

We need more teachers like this

'In Art History 101, we learned that the Venus of Willendorf could possibly have been a self-portrait, and because there weren’t mirrors at the time, the woman would have had to look down at herself for reference, explaining the warped proportions. Of course, no one knows for sure, but I liked the idea of it, so I decided to do a quick self-portrait using the same method of reference.' -Person who drew this, just check the source.
Uh, does no one realise that this is a self-portrait? If you say that this is a horrible view then can you please reflect on yourself.

Tumblr has taught me more about feminism, womens rights, rape culture, slut shaming, mental illness etc, more than school ever had. So don’t you dare tell me this website is a complete and utter waste of time

To be honest, I find Tony Abbott confronting and think he should be banned from entering government buildings

The Australian Government has decided to introduce segregation in Parliament House for Muslim women wearing burqas. Rather than joining the rest of the public in the gallery, they get to sit in a glass box.

Yep.
