European League for Middle Level Education Keynote
January 19, 2018
Join Rosalind Wiseman at European League for Middle Level Education (ELMLE)’s Annual Conference for the general session keynote.
Rosalind Wiseman’s presentation is a call to action to transform the way we understand youth culture. She exposes the complex challenges young people face with group dynamics, social media, interactions with adults, and adolescent identity development. She’ll share how young people’s social dynamics influence their individual decision making interactions and offer step-by-step advice on how to teach young people to treat each other with dignity. Her classroom experience and collaboration with communities is the basis for her work and Rosalind recognizes that creating a culture of dignity in a school is challenging and ongoing work. With this in mind, Rosalind will illustrate how the social landscape of young people, cliques, bullying, and social hierarchies among children and adults can be placed into a larger context of social justice. All participants walk away from the presentation with positive ways to impact their community.
