It’s that time of year. Kids are finishing up their summer homework and teachers are preparing their classrooms and going over their curricula.
As you prepare for the 2014/2015 school year, we would like to offer up a few resources that will help you make your classroom a humane classroom. And we would love to hear any additional suggestions on how you model humane behavior, create a safe learning space, and bring human rights, animal protection and environmental ethics into your daily lessons.
