Classrooms and Curriculum Webinar - The Role of Teachers in Creating a Culture of Kindness and Respect
|Event Date:||09/19/2012||Event Fee:||No Fee|
|Event Time:||7pm EST|
You’ve taken your students to see the film Bully; now what role can you play as an individual school teacher to promote a culture of kindness and respect? Assemblies, hallway posters, and school-wide programs can potentially be effective, but how can classrooms and curriculum support anti-bullying, pro-kindness efforts?
Hosted by Justin Reich, Education Week blogger and Facing History’s Director of Online Community, Practice, and Research.
In this session, we’ll address the role that individual educators can play in creating safe schools. Justin will be joined by four excellent teachers: Tonya Troske of Amy Biehl High School in Albuquerque, NM, Sasha Guzman of SEA-New Technology High School, Los Angeles, CA, Katie Fiorelli of Capital City Public Charter School, Washington, DC and Jeff Galaise of the Facing History School in New York City. These terrific teachers will share some of their best strategies for getting the school year started right, and how they use standards-aligned lessons and units so that their academic curriculum time contributes to a culture of kindness and respect.
Webinar attendees will leave with new teaching strategies, specific resources from Facing History and other organizations, and great ideas for combating meanness and cruelty through teaching.
