Empower Students. Change Campus Culture
As an educator, you want to do all you can to positively impact your school. Let’s be honest though. The daily demands of academic curriculum leaves little time for extra lessons and activities. You know the time is worth it but devoting a full hour often isn’t possible. If only there way a way to consistently empower students to create the change that you all want to see. Golden Rule Ambassadors allows you to do just that. Each themed month is packed with five weekly lessons and a monthly challenge which helps students practice civility and citizenship on campus and in the community. Golden Rule Ambassadors is written by award-winning social skills educator Jeff Veley and Teacher of the Year, Chris Scheufele. It’s suitable for middle and high school students. Each lesson is modeled after strict curriculum standards/best practices, and was piloted in Texas public schools.
