This resource is from the Corwin companion site for Identify Safe Classrooms, Grades K–5: Places to Belong and Learn by Dorothy Steele and Becki Cohn-Vargas. This organizer guides teachers to plan strategies that will be useful in focusing classroom instruction on prosocial behaviors that can contribute to students’ understanding of differences and their assets. Organizers like these can remind instructors of the various ways that including topics like empathy, respect, and consensus building can focus students’ attention on ways of communicating across differences. Teachers can use this organizer to ensure that they plan class time for specific activities, such as class meetings, that help develop students’ prosocial behaviors.
