Nonviolent Schools Summer Institute at the University of Rhode Island
A sixteen year old recently referred to this generation as “the mass shooting generation”. As educators, this sentiment can make us feel helpless and fearful, and certainly affects the mindset of the students who are in your classrooms. If you want to change this narrative, then consider attending the Nonviolent Schools Summer Institute, which offers solutions for anyone who works in a school, through tangible practices, that can be applied in the classroom or any learning space. Nonviolent Schools RI founder Robin Wildman has developed curriculum and instructional techniques that are rooted in the principles and practices of Martin Luther King, Jr. (Kingian Nonviolence) and the civil rights movement, and are presently being implemented in schools in Rhode Island. This approach has been proven to transform the climate and culture of schools that are being compromised by negative attitudes and violence. The training will include activities to use in the classroom, social emotional learning ideas, restorative practice, de-escalating anger and understanding conflict, rehabilitative decision making based on infractions, etc.
