Insist or Enlist?: Adultism versus Climates of Excellence
Tate, Thomas F.; Copas, Randall L.
Reclaiming Children and Youth: The Journal of Strength-based Interventions, v12 n1 p40-45 Spr 2003
Positive climates in youth-serving organizations abandon adversarial encounters and enlist youth as partners in empowerment. The authors describe this approach, drawing from the "Cultivating Productive Peer Relationships" curriculum in the "No Disposable Kids" training program. Adults need strategies to build respectful relationships and to motivate students to take responsibility for their behavior. A productive peer climate is a prerequisite to creating environments of excellence. (Contains 1 table.)
