In our Catholic schools we are all about respect – for self, for others. Do you have students in your classroom who are new to this country? According to the most recent issue of Educational Leadership, you may be able to give them confidence and enlarge other students perspectives by inviting them to share their experiences. You can find many good ideas and resources by going to http://www.ascd.org/
If you are (or your school is) a member of ASCD, you can read the entire publication on-line. If not a member, there is information available to any reader and resources as well.
If you find something helpful and try it in your classroom, let us know what you tried and how successful (or?) it was. This blog can broaden your Professional Learning Network beyond your school hallways.
