I created a public service announcement for my class after realizing that there were many friendship issues arising.  I used the PSA to teach my students about being kind to one another, being understanding, and standing up for one another.

A3 - This PSA demonstrates how I use relevant classroom factors and characteristics in planning.  When I realized that we were having struggles in our class because some students did not know how to handle issues that arouse in their friendships, I took the opportunity to plan my PDA around something I truly thought would be beneficial to them.  Students helped created the PSA, which I also thought was a helpful way to get the messages to stick.
