Albert Einstein said, “Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.” These words are the basis of peace in our classrooms. Peace means empathy for others, comprehension of differences, and knowledge of how and why to bridge those differences. In this course, teachers will have the opportunity to explore what it means to create a peaceful classroom, incorporate activities that promote peace, and create a social and emotional learning environment for students to feel safe and willing to take risks to learn.
This course is appropriate for teachers K-12.
