Empowering sixth, seventh, and eighth-grade students to create cultures of dignity and confront social cruelty and injustice
Owning Up has helped teachers, counselors, and leaders give students the tools they need to own up and take responsibility—as perpetrators, bystanders, and targets—for unethical behavior and to treat themselves and others with dignity.
Social dynamics, anxiety, and conflicts influence every child’s ability to learn. A safe school climate depends on teaching students the skills to manage their emotions and critically think through solutions to social conflicts. How, then, do you prepare youth to be engaged learners and responsible, socially conscious citizens?
Owning Up Curriculum provides you with the resources to teach young people that their dignity and the dignity of others is the principle that guides our decisions and actions every day in our friendships, families, and schools.
This bigger, comprehensive edition features:
- Three flexible, dynamic curricula separated by grade- sixth, seventh, and eighth grade
- A new chapter and lesson plans for successfully implementing a social and emotional learning program in every school
- More games, role-playing activities, and provocative discussion questions to use in co-ed or single-sex groups
- Even more lessons and updated resources
Designed for use both in school and out and spanning topics from friendships, social media, teasing, and harassment, Owning Up provides you with the resources to teach young people that their dignity and the dignity of others is the principle that guides our decisions and actions every day in our friendships, families, and schools. As educators, we must enlist the people who can make a real difference: the students.
