Kids these days.
They’re brilliant and bold and……way too boisterous.
They’re silly and shy and……unnecessarily skeptical.
They’re confident and creative and……carrying the weight of this broken, beautiful world on their shoulders.
Kids these days…..they’re different.

Inspiring speeches aren’t enough. Anti-bullying initiatives aren’t enough. And external rewards for good behavior certainly aren’t enough.
But you are.
YOU are enough.
That’s why we want you to take this course.

How might we teach for compassion without compromising content knowledge or critical domain-specific skills?04
How might we refine instructional practices in ways that cultivate compassion?05
How could compassion influence our assessment practices?06
What is strengths-based teaching and learning, and how might we begin to approach it?07
How does belonging enable us to set and maintain healthy boundaries?08
