Black Box

This week we will be wrapping up our curriculum arc on self care/happiness, and moving on to a unit of lessons and activities that look at how to understand other's thoughts and emotions. We use the metaphor of the black flight recording box on an airplane because it contains all of the information about the plane but reveals no information on the surface. 

Since we can't see inside the black box, we will be learning tricks and tools for fathering the information we need to understand what other people are thinking and why. I will be writing more about this over the next couple of weeks, so be sure to follow along on the blog or on facebook (links below).

Here are some articles that I have previously written on theory of mind:

Also, I am gathering names of parents interested in their child attending a supported summer camp that we are doing in partnership with Holiday Hill in Mansfield the first two weeks of August. More information to follow soon.
