This passionate book is about community, compassion, and creativity; it is about caring for others. Teachers will learn how to establish inclusive classrooms where kindness and concern become crucial backdrops for critical conversations. They will be introduced to simple but profound strategies that initiate and maintain respectful dialogue, promote collaboration over competition, and confront difficult issues such as bullying and exclusion. Through engaging, relevant, open-ended activities, students will be encouraged to explore events, ideas, themes, stories, and relationships from different perspectives, and then represent those new understandings in innovative and creative ways.
