The Compassionate Classroom is a long
awaited how-to guide for educators who care about creating a safe,
productive learning environment. With 45 years combined teaching
experience, Sura Hart and Victoria Kindle Hodson merge recent
discoveries in brain research with the proven skills of Nonviolent
Communication and come to a bold conclusion - when compassion
thrives, so does learning.
The Compassionate Classroom gives educators powerful
skills to create an emotionally safe learning environment where
academic excellence thrives. Build trust, reduce conflict, improve
cooperation, and maximize the potential of each student as you
create relationship-centered classrooms. This how-to guide is
perfect for any educator, homeschool parent, administrator or
mentor. Customizable exercises, activities, charts and cutouts make
it easy for educators to create lesson plans for a day, a week or
an entire school year. The Compassionate Classroom is the
first complete curriculum for teaching the NVC process to
elementary age students.
