Power
The Ability to Control Something or Someone Else
ByBecky Hunt
Pages 28

The concept of power is seen daily in the classroom and throughout the school. Students learn to respect the authority of the principals, teachers, and staff that help them throughout the day. They learn the routines and rules that are put into place to help to make the school day go smoothly. Power is also played out by children as they use their brainpower to learn and make decisions. Throughout the day everyone uses the power of their heart as they share empathy with others and reach out their hand to someone in need. When children learn to look at conflicts through the lens of the Global Concept of Power, they bring new understanding issues. Bullies try to take power away from others and control them with threats of violence, name calling, and exclusion. Students will have greater understanding of world conflict once they understand the concept of Power.
