The next session begins on November 1.
RedRover offers an online self-paced course through Humane Society Academy, "Humane Literacy: Promoting Empathy, Critical Thinking and Language Skills in the Classroom." The course is a three-week course with five hours of course work. Participants work at their own pace to accomplish the required tasks within the three-week time period. Participants learn how to implement the question strategies and discussion techniques used in the RedRover Readers curriculum.
This course is open to all community members. Priority registration is given to certified teachers. After taking the course, participants gain access to the RedRover Readers curriculum. Teachers can then implement the curriculum in their own classrooms and humane educators may implement the curriculum under their own organization to encourage empathy and compassion through critical thinking, discussions and reflection activities.
The registration fee for this online training is $79.
The next session will run from November 1 to November 22, 2014.
