In partnership with AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah School Safety Patrol program, we’re proud to share teacher-led and student self-guided digital educational resources for Creating Safe Spaces – an interactive guide for students on how to have courageous conversations.
AAA Creating Safe Spaces Overview
This lesson is all about students being leaders in creating safe spaces through active listening and learning. As students return to the classroom, meet new friends, and have important conversations, the content of this lesson will help them navigate difficult situations and create safe spaces for others.
What Students Will Learn
Through this self-led activity, students will learn:
- What makes a safe space, and how they can be leaders in creating safe spaces
- Active listening tips for listening with openness, curiosity, and without interrupting
- “I Statements” as a habit for healthy communication
Interactive activities are included throughout the lesson, with applications for how students can put these topics into practice at school and at home. This activity will take approximately 15-20 minutes.
