All members of the school community have roles in creating a safe and respectful environment. Let’s take a new approach to replacing bullying behaviors with kindness and collaboration. Learn specific strategies that can be used with school faculty and with students to examine and transform how we think and choose to behave.
During this highly interactive session:
— explore how words matter
— embrace change as a means to discover new ideas and possibilities, and
—experience service learning as key to youth engagement while connecting academics to positive social behavior.
As part of the journey, hear examples of scenarios from other schools. Enjoy a wealth of literature, both fiction and nonfiction, that become key in community building. Take away ideas you can use immediately!
