Storyboard Text

  • Have a Strategy for De-Escalating High Intensity Situations.
  • Can anyone tell me what this symbol represents?
  • That?! That's the American Imperialist Pigs clamping down on our people!
  • No way! My dad says you're just brainwashed by propaganda.
  • Well, my dad says your dad is an American puppet complicit in their hedonistic indulgences, preying upon our women and exploiting the income gap! I'm going to destroy you, slave!!!
  • Recognize That the Student Is Out of Control.
  • Duong, you've clearly lost control of your emotions.
  • Whoa! Check please...
  • OMG!! Mr. Chris, I'm freaked!!
  • Step Back and Calm Yourself.
  • Okay...I've trained for this. Relax. Stay calm. Check yourself before you wreck yourself ...that's it, Mr. Chris. Just breathe.
  • Who did you call brainwashed, stretch? Maybe you're in need of a little "re-education".
  • For the love of god, Stop the Hate!
  • I didn't mean it! I swear, yay Communism...
  • The Teacher should be prepared for a variety of incidents or altercations.
  • Listen Actively to the Student and Plan Action.
  • I just want to be happy. I want peace, man.
  • A Teacher must recognize when a student is no longer able to think rationally. Reasoning at this stage is futile.
  • When the Student Is Calm, Repeat Simple Verbal Request.
  • Very well. I submit to your logic, Mr. Chris.
  • That was some Jedi Mind Melding! Cool beans!
  • The first person a Teacher should deal with in a crisis moment is himself. Remaining calm is critical. Maintain physical distance to signify you aren't a threat to the student in question. 
  • Happiness Reigns in the Fatherland.
  • This was a beautiful learning experience for us all. Just remember, when things go awry, you should always take a step back, breathe deeply and reflect on our common One-ness.
  • Active listening allows the student to vent their frustrations and communicates the fact that their feelings are not being discounted. A Teacher should continue active listening until the student begins to calm down.
  • I see you're quite angry, Duong. I wish I had realized this before. It seems that you’re angry about the effects of Post-Colonial, Post-Modern Global Capitalism on One-Party States still clinging to the tattered remnants of a failed Marxist-Leninist idealogy solely as a means of social control. Tell me why.
  • Well, what would you do, Mr. Chris?! Roll over and just take it!? We've carved a national identity out of thousands of years of invasion and oppression. The tip of the spear best be sharp! I'm filled with rage! I want...I want...I want...
  • As the student calms down the Teacher should communicate a simple request intended to lower the tension, usually involving the Teacher and student leaving the classroom. The request should be repeated a number of times as if it were a broken record.
  • Duong, I want you to go with me outside in the hallway to discuss this further. Can we please do that now? Duong, I want you to go with me outside in the hallway to discuss this further. Can we please do that now?
  • Everything zen. Everything zen. Everything zen...
  • A Teacher should have a number of steps outlined in an overall plan for diffusing conflicts and improving behavior. A balanced approach works best, including acknowledgement of positive behavior as well.
