About

Overview

As middle school students adjust to tougher academics, they also find themselves introduced to increasingly complex social situations—including conflicts on social media, racism, anxiety, and bullying—and the choices they make can have repercussions far beyond the classroom. But they are not alone. This new edition from bestselling author and Cultures of Dignity co-founder Rosalind Wiseman is packed with the latest research-based strategies, reviewed by high school and middle school students and revised to include all that she has learned while working over decades with young people. Owning Up has helped teachers, counselors, and leaders give students the tools they need to own up and take responsibility—as perpetrators, bystanders, and targets—for unethical behavior and to treat themselves and others with dignity.
