VIEW PROJECT


Coming together in sharing circles is the first step in developing emotionally safe classroom environments. This is the kind of nurturing climate needed to introduce social decision-making and problem solving skills. Through participating in sharing circles, students develop a sense of responsiveness to other people's feelings and opinions, and they are able to deepen their capacity to share and discuss more personal and complex issues. This prototype prepares teachers to work with Sharing Circles to foster social decision-making skills within their classroom and school activities.
