Subject : Implementing “All Behaviors Count” in School Settings
Detail : Start your school year off prepared to handle issues related to bullying and other socially cruel behaviors with this . one-day workshop to learn about Holocaust Museum Houston’s “All Behaviors Count” program. “All Behaviors Count” is a free, modular program that examines the five forms of social cruelty: taunting, rumoring, exclusion, ganging up and bullying. This program examines the roles each of the five forms of social cruelty plays in both school life and in culture. Broadening the scope to include other behaviors beyond bullying is significantly different than approaching bullying as a singular behavior. In addition to teaching about these negative behaviors, this program also focuses on teaching how to respond to social cruelty in positive ways. These social resiliency skills – both intra-and inter-personal – mean that students who participate in the program are prepared to address issues of social cruelty directly. In this session, educators will learn how to use examples from media and popular culture in classroom instruction to widen the experiences students see and discuss. This program is highly recommended for districts working to meet state guidelines regarding stopping bullying in all grade levels (K-12). Teachers, principals, curriculum leaders and guidance counselors should consider attending. This workshop has been approved by the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented for five hours in social and emotional needs of gifted and talented learners. The fee for this program is $20 per person, which includes workshop materials but not lunch. Registration is limited to 40 teachers, and must be received by Aug. 2, 2013.
