For the next two weeks, (this week is short due to Fall Break), our Second Step Social/Emotional lessons will center on being assertive. Being assertive involves using an assertive posture when we interact with others, (facing the other person, head up, shoulders back, calm/firm voice, respectful words). Communicating assertively is the best way to ask others for help. Assertiveness will help you be successful in a variety of social and academic situations.
