Teaching and Learning: The Toolbox

Posted on Updated on

toolboxAll BUSD schools are implementing a new program this year called “The Toolbox.” It’s a program that gives students (and adults) “tools” to help us become effective learners, friends, community members, and citizens. For example, the first “tool” we will be learning about and using is our breathing tool. The idea is to teach students to use their tools when faced with challenging situations or to help them through life. I will share the “tools” with you all as we learn them, and I will see if we can have a Toolbox presentation at a future PTA meeting. The curriculum is also being used at the middle schools with 6th grade. ~Beth Rhine
