In this Teaching Tip I provide a link to a short YouTube video. In the video I describe a few ways in which children can form teams for sports. Traditionally, in this situation two children act as team captains and take turns selecting players until every child has been assigned to a team. This method may appear fast and efficient, but it can cause lasting self-esteem damage in the kidsâ€™ who are chosen last. In the video I share ways to form teams that avoid this type of public selection.
Several weeks ago I officially re-launched my YouTube page as the â€œTeaching Kidsâ€ channel and posted my first new video of the school year. Each of my new â€œTeaching Kidsâ€ videos will feature 1-2 minute tips for educators and parents and will address a wide variety of topics that focus on teaching the whole child, including academics, character, and health.
