Values in Action: GO HDR!


Published on

Inspired by the 2010 Ethical Literacy Conference featured presentation, “Embedding Social Responsibility into School Culture,” this interactive session will illustrate how students can be empowered to contribute and take responsibility for the culture of their school. Chris Cooper and Jill Reilly will explore ways to promote student ownership and social responsibility by using a student-centered approach to positive behavior intervention, called GO HDR! (Giving back, Ownership, Honest, Dependable, Respectful). They will also discuss ways of increasing awareness of GO HDR across the schools, including building values rubrics for various school settings, using the Honor Council as a driving force, and advancing GO HDR using student led activities.
