Nationally Recognized youth speaker Jamahl Keyes Tip:A School Assembly-The Tip for Teaching Your Students About Character Development and Youth Leadership.
We’ve all heard that old maxim that a good school assembly can help set the right tone for the school year, but in accordance with studies, schools that have assemblies have better results than schools that don’t have assemblies.
“A school assembly is the foremost approach to introduce your students to tough subjects like bullying, character development and leadership,” explains Jamahl Keyes, top selling author, Character Development trainer and youth leadership speaker. “Using a School Assembly to introducestudents to what they need to learn and know helps teachers and staff reinforce what has to beexpected from the students throughout the year.”
And it’s not really agood school assembly that’s important, says Jamahl. If thespeaker can also leave some materials that students can take home and or use in the classroom this can be a welcome additionto any school’s curriculum.
Although students love togo to any type of school assembly, it is very important to find one that uses visual arts, good interaction, comedy and perhaps music if you are to reach the student of the Twenty-first century. Studies showthat the average students attention span is not as long as their predecessors. So to educate the student of today speakers need to have a certain element of entertainment to the message they are trying to convey.”In all of my programs I make sureto get the attention of the students with a mind reading effect, because if I can get their attention initially I can slip some main points they need to know throughout the program.” explains, Jamahl.
