Attacks vs. Retreats:A collaborative model for developing Personal Awareness and Responsibility in students.

Attacks vs. Retreats:

A collaborative model for developing Personal Awareness and Responsibility in students.

This workshop presents a collaborative (teacher and student-directed) model for the development of competencies in personal awareness and responsibility. This model includes modifications to the classroom environment, as well as teacher-directed activities, that provide for social development and the nurturing of social responsibility. In addition this model encourages (and even requires) students to take initiative in such activities, and to eventually design and execute activities of their own.

Students will be sharing specific experiences (successes as well as failures!) in the development and execution of their own social and community projects.

Seminar will provide suggestions as to how to build classroom experiences that foster social and emotional development, awareness of personal skills, and personal responsibility into your current class environment.
