Our students are more anxious, aggressive, and shut down than ever. Teachers are wondering what went wrong. Have they failed their students? How can they get them back?
The answer lies in creating the conditions for change: building relationships with students where they're at. The answer lies in teachers becoming the leaders their students need. Hannah Beach is an acclaimed author and arts educator, and Tamara Strijack is a clinical counsellor who has worked with children and adolescents for twenty-five years. This book combines Hannah's groundbreaking approach to the role of arts in the classroom with Dr. Gordon Neufeld's influential work on building relationships with children.
