Infusing humane education into classrooms can happen year-round, but how teachers set the stage at the beginning of the year significantly influences the rest of the year.
Especially for new teachers, there is a lot to consider: curriculum, policies, how to decorate (or not) the room, those first days of welcoming and orienting students, and more.
We at IHE have created Pinterest boards that offer resources, lesson plans, strategies, and ideas to help (especially new) elementary school and secondary school teachers set up their classrooms to invite and explore humane education values, issues, and principles.
For extra support in bringing humane education into your classroom, sign up for our six-week online course for educators, Teaching for a Positive Future. It starts October 3.
You can also join our new Solutionary Teachers Facebook group.
