LifeSkills at Beresford

Beresford is a school focused on HET (Highly Effective Teaching). A major component of this philosophy is teaching the Life Skills. Life Skills provide the basis for three important functions of a body-brain-compatible learning environment:

They are the agreed-upon behaviors for all and thus replace the rules of traditional "discipline" programs
They provide a safe environment for creating and maintaining a sense of community
They describe the behaviors of civil discourse which are the foundation for citizenship
Speak with your child's teacher about how to integrate the Life Skills each day. Get suggestions about real world situations and how you use the Life Skills to be a better citizen. Read more about Lifeskills
