Today’s Tip: Using Sociograms to strengthen connections

We are pleased to share a new series of videos featuring SAM teams today.

The first in the series is about a novel way an Illinois SAM high school principal uses sociograms to build adult teams. Based on a practice of the Navy Seals, he forms Battle Buddies and Squads using sociograms to build positive connections and improve school culture.

He uses a similar approach to determine the connections between students and staff. They use this information to identify students who are left out, do not have adults they trust or have a connection, and then work to make sure a connection is created.
