When we think about serious threats to a positive school culture like chronic disciplinary issues and bullying, we rarely think about critical thinking as a solution. In fact, because educators often treat critical thinking like a luxury good reserved for top students, students who struggle with behavior issues do not get the benefits of analyzing different perspectives and thinking through root causes of problems – both which would improve empathy and enhance decision-making skills to contribute to a more positive school culture.
Join us on Thursday, March 8th at 8E/7C/6M/5P as our Founder|CEO, Colin Seale, explains how thinkLaw’s award-winning, standards-aligned program based on real-life legal cases can be used to address chronic disciplinary issues.
