We’ve collaborated with experts to identify actionable practices that will help educators build a more caring classroom for students. Each practice is easy to try using the provided toolkit that includes a mix of self-reflection, classroom activities, and ways to share how the practice made a difference for your students.

There’s no time like the present to try something new in your classroom! Select a practice below and download the free toolkit to get started.

And, since we are a community of learners, we’d love your feedback. Once you’ve tried a practice, please share how it worked with us at hi@sevenzo.org.
