AMLE General Session: Promoting Healthy Student Choices by Changing the Climate at School and at Home
October 26, 2018$249 – $499
Join Rosalind Wiseman at AMLE 2018 Annual Conference!
Rosalind Wiseman and Sameer Hinduja share a toolbox of techniques to promote positive youth behaviors through school climate and parenting-based initiatives. First. Dr. Hinduja encourages attendees to marshal the powers of peer influence and school culture to curtail peer harassment, bullying, and other problem behaviors by focusing on social norming, youth grassroots campaigns, peer mentoring, student advisory boards, role-playing scenarios, and other research-based strategies. Not only will these enhance youth achievement, productivity, connectedness, and morale, but also produce students who are safe, smart, honest, and responsible both offline and online.
Rosalind Wiseman will expand on Dr. Hinduja’s presentation on how educators and parents can better communicate with people about these issues. Wiseman will begin by highlighting some of the “land mines” adults often step on—in spite of our best intentions—that often derail not only learning opportunities but also create disconnection in our relationships with young people. Wiseman will provide relatable situations and the realistic responses that get away from fear-based approaches to one where critical thinking skills, media literacy, social competence, and empathy form the foundation for learning and creating cultures of dignity in schools.
