A child’s ability to learn depends on educators managing a task that has nothing to do with what they may teach: guiding young people as they navigate social dynamics.
Social media, social dynamics, and bullying influences every child’s ability to learn.
But the reality is educators rarely get training to develop this expertise. Even if they do, the training and resources can be unrealistic and don’t integrate and appreciate the educator’s expertise of their students, schools, or communities.
Rosalind Wiseman and the Cultures of Dignity team have designed a dynamic new approach to teaching these topics. Based on the second edition of the Owning Up Curriculum, it is also so much more. Whether you work in a school, a team, or a youth-serving organization, the Owning Up Training brings concrete strategies to prepare youth to be engaged learners and socially responsible citizens.
Taking the newest approaches and the latest feedback from educators and young people, we have redeveloped professional development to provide the skills and expertise that any educator needs to create a culture of dignity.
