Look at the Unit Skill Builders section of each unit to find positive behaviors for the students to explore. Also, from experience, we have found it is more effective to teach students positive behavior without drawing attention to negative behavior. We have first-hand knowledge of instances where students learned new ideas for cruelty and bullying behavior from “Bully Prevention” programs that informed them ways they should “not” to act. It turns out they had never thought of those new ways and started implementing new, negative behaviors! IM4U sticks with the positive.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, IM4U supports language like “helpful” or “hurtful” behavior, or “healthy” versus “unhealthy” behavior.
