The Premise: The PeaceBeat is the spirit that lives in all of us…that spirit that never dies.
The Goal: Teachers are not just improving student behavior, but constantly creating an optimal learning environment that promotes students’ overall school success.
The PeaceBeat project is a tool for students designed to help them think like, act like, and to be good people! This can be presented as a Professional Development for teachers or as a project in the classrooms with either an undergraduate or graduate student.
The PeaceBeat allows students to recognize and access the spirit inside them that helps them to “do the right thing” and allows them to be the best they can be!
