Overview

The 21 lessons in this resource for teachers and counselors help make school a place where all students feel supported and accepted so they can focus on classes, friendship, and fun activities. Over the course of the lessons, the leader introduces the concept of Developmental Assets®, teaches students how to build these assets for themselves and others, and gives them the tools to spread messages of kindness, caring, boundaries, and acceptance to other students and adults. Role-playing and other activities will help students learn to effectively stop meanness with a respectful, caring demeanor toward both victim and antagonist. Ultimately, school becomes a warmer place where both teachers and students thrive.
