When kids are hurt or angry about name-calling, harassment, or bullying, they don't focus on schoolwork. At what point does bad behavior create a hostile environment, require corrective action, or become a legal issue? STAND TALL is a video-based educational program that educates teachers and students in Grades 4-6 about how to respond to disrespectful behavior. Students will enjoy watching the videos and doing the classroom exercises while building skills that are critical for creating a positive classroom community. With seven quick chapters and four evocative video modules, STAND TALL results in three core competencies:
RESPECT for individual differences
DISCUSSION to further understanding
ACTION that transforms behavior
One module, which includes commentary from educators, legal experts, and counselors, is designed for teachers and provides guidance on using the student-oriented materials. The program also provides advice on preventing harassment, clarification of relevant laws, Department of Education guidelines, and a compendium of resources and classroom activities. STAND TALL helps teachers create a powerfully positive learning environment in which all students feel respected.
Suggested use: Order one STAND TALL Teacher's Manual & DVD to view together plus as many individual STAND TALL Teacher's Manuals as needed to accommodate your group.
