In this interactive session, participants will engage in strategies that have been proven to increase teacher-student and student-student relationships, thereby increasing student achievement and decreasing the need for punitive classroom management. Facilitators will incorporate techniques that focus on race and racial relations, as well as global interaction. Content will be focused on social justice issues and will be delivered through Culturally Responsive Pedagogy. Participants will be introduced to Summer Academy, a growing transition program for incoming ninth graders in Osseo Area Schools, a program that has been increasingly successful due to the aforementioned strategies.
