“The Bully, The Bullied and the Bystander” featuring Barbara Coloroso: A One-Day Teacher Workshop
April 18, 2012 8:45 AM - 3:30 PM
Location Avrohm I. Wisenberg Multipurpose Learning Center
The Museum welcomes international best-selling author and consultant Barbara Coloroso, who will present to educators in the morning of this one-day workshop. Her uniquely effective parenting and teaching strategies were developed through her years of training in sociology, special education and philosophy, as well as field-tested through her experiences as a classroom teacher, laboratory school instructor, university instructor, seminar leader, volunteer in Rwanda, and mother of three grown children. She is the author of four international best-sellers, including “The Bully, the Bullied, and the Bystander — From Pre-School to High School” and “Extraordinary Evil: A Brief History of Genocide ... And Why it Matters." In the afternoon, HMH Education Department staff will present their newest program: “All Behaviors Count: Humanity in Action.” This program provides information about the five behaviors of social cruelty and how schools can develop communities in which humanity is in action. Teasing, exclusion, bullying, rumoring and ganging up have all led to violence in the past few years; in a world of total connectedness, with no down time as in the past, these behaviors are causing greater damage. This interactive afternoon will include presentations, visiting of relevant exhibition spaces and rich discussion. The cost for the one-day session – including materials and a copy of Coloroso’s book “Extraordinary Evil: A Brief History of Genocide ... And Why it Matters,” is $25. Lunch is not included.
