    Proactive Approaches to Help Students Control Their Anger

    Article
    Monica Fisher says:
    I love this article because it focuses on things that can be done in a preventative and proactive manner. Schools tends be very reaction oriented when it comes to student behavior. We often ask why did this happen rather than what can we do to prevent this from happening? These are simple but effective strategies that are good for all students, not just those who are struggling with anger control.

    Anger Management Strategies for Students

    Article
    Monica Fisher says:
    This article is brief but is chock full of quick discussion points, role play ideas, and practical strategies for students to readily use as they learn to control their anger. Anger is a common emotion. As an adult, it's generally easy for us to quickly think of alternative things to do when we feel angry. This capacity must be taught and practiced with students.

    A great book for working with elementary and middle school students. This focuses on developing anger control skills based in a group setting, which also allows for the opportunity to build social skills as well. The lessons also included a part where it tells you exactly what to say just in case you're at a loss for words.

    A video about deep breathing for anger control. I used this video frequently with kids because it's catchy. Within a few times of watching the video, my students caught on to the gist of the song.

    Another ready-to-go resource using a group. I enjoyed using this resource because it was visually stimulating to my students. They are familiar with the game so it kept their attention as well. Additionally, these lessons could be done individually just in case a student was unable to attend group.

    This blog post is a ready-to-go lesson on anger control and allows for kids to write their own thoughts and then color the pages. Who doesn't love to color? I used this resource because it was simple, connected to kids and communicated the skills that I wanted my students to capture.

    Kids love videos! This one highlights the idea that we can choose our feelings including whether or not we will hold on to anger.
