I found the sessions very meaningful and I strongly believe that "Social and Emotional Skills" should be included as a subject in teaching training. The first session was outstanding. "The emotional profiling of children" helped me divide my learners easily into the 4 basic emotional categories.
The teachers challenges:
1) Teachers must be careful not to respond to the secondary feeling expressed, but to find the primary feeling experienced.
2) Rather try to rectify the wrong, instead of punishing the wrong. Sermons are only effective if there is a relationship between the teacher and her pupils. That's why sending learners to the principle aren't always the best option.
The sessions motivate me to communicate to the learners in a soft and understandable tone. I now have more confidence in solving problems and have realised the importance of respect for the teacher.
