Lisa Brown, a veteran teacher at Nauset Regional High School in Eastham, has a popular class with a curriculum of her own making called “Exploring and Respecting Differences.” It focuses on social emotional learning skills, conflict & mediation, gender, identity, personal morality and empowering students to effect positive change in their own lives and in society through social change and leadership. Brown will share with us some of the nuts and bolts of this class, the theory behind its design and her observations of the transformations that happen when it works. All are welcome!
Live at Chapel in the Pines and on Zoom.
