Teach respect and help students achieve their full potential

When kids are hurt or angry about name-calling, harassment, or bullying, they don’t focus on schoolwork. At what point does bad behavior create a hostile environment, require corrective action, or become a legal issue? STAND TALL is a video-based educational program that educates teachers and students in Grades 4–6 about how to respond to disrespectful behavior. Students will enjoy watching the videos and doing the classroom exercises while building skills that are critical for creating a positive classroom community. With seven quick chapters and four evocative video modules, STAND TALL results in three core competencies:

  • RESPECT for individual differences
  • DISCUSSION to further understanding
  • ACTION that transforms behavior

One module, which includes commentary from educators, legal experts, and counselors, is designed for teachers and provides guidance on using the student-oriented materials. The program also provides advice on preventing harassment, clarification of relevant laws, Department of Education guidelines, and a compendium of resources and classroom activities. STAND TALL helps teachers create a powerfully positive learning environment in which all students feel respected.

Individual STAND TALL Teacher’s Manuals can be ordered as needed to accommodate your group.
