Journey Toward the Caring Classroom (2nd Ed.)
Using Adventure to Create Community
by Laurie Frank
A must-have for educators and facilitators building classroom community. Journey Toward the Caring Classroom, 2nd Edition, deftly bridges the gap between conventional and experiential education, empowering educators/facilitators to use their minds, intuition, and knowledge along with a growing body of evidence to create an environment that supports learning, community building, and social-emotional development. Educational theory, concrete in-class strategies, and engaging activities encourage educators to transform their classroom into a caring place where every learner can grow.
The updated edition includes frameworks for building community, addressing bullying behaviours, activities that promote community building, trust, decision making, and problem solving, and a selection of debriefing and processing activities. Activities also provide ideas for various grade levels, ages, and levels of ability - with adaptations and modifications ready to go!
This book makes a great addition to the Safe Schools PAK!
