Working Toward Safe Schools in America
The past couple of years have marked a turning point for school safety and gun violence in the country – the majority of American citizens are speaking up about the need to end the epidemic of gun violence. The tragedies in places like Nashville, St. Louis, Buffalo, Uvalde, El Paso, Parkland and more have marked a turning point for young people, many of whom see the issue of gun violence as a key issue for their generation. When students, teachers, and staff feel safe and secure in their schools, they are better equipped to focus on learning, growth and healing.
In addition to providing free resources on trauma-informed practices, this Share My Lesson collection explores the scope of the problem, potential solutions, and youth activism on the issue of gun violence in the United States. Check out sample resources below, then start your lesson planning here.
