TRIBAL RHYTHMS CURRICULUM GUIDE

Creating the Village: A Curriculum Guide for Building Community with Children

"There was a person who made a circle to keep me ... So I made a circle to include us both."

Thousands of teachers across Massachusetts and in 13 other states (and in Canada, Israel, the Netherlands, Germany and Australia) are using Tribal Rhythms techniques to build learning communities with their children. The Tribal Rhythms curriculum guide gives teachers a powerful system that helps children achieve academic success and learn the values of caring, cooperation and respect.

The Guide outlines a step-by-step process teachers can use in the classroom to guide children's social development both individually, and as a group. The guide has proven to be a potent tool for helping schools create a climate in which children feel safe, and have ample opportunities to express opinions and emotions, discuss problems and learn compassion for each other. The program helps youngsters develop respect for differences while creating common ground among children from different cultures, religions, races and economic backgrounds. Children and teachers develop common bonds through daily use of Tribal Rhythms themes and group-building activities.

The outcome of using this process regularly in the classroom is that children internalize the values of caring, cooperation and respect, and they discover that each child's uniqueness contributes to the combined knowledge and experience of the whole group.

The outcome of using this process regularly in the classroom is that children internalize the values of caring, cooperation and respect, and they discover that each child's uniqueness contributes to the combined knowledge and experience of the whole group. Using proven classroom management techniques, the Tribal Rhythms curriculum gives you positive approaches to discipline that empower your children to exercise leadership, make democratic decisions and resolve conflicts peacefully. Using Tribal Rhythms, you will spend more time teaching and less preparing your students to learn.

The curriculum provides you with step-by-step instructions for creating your Learning Tribe, including twenty easy-to-do music, dance, drama and visual arts activities, dozens of follow-up ideas, diagrams, charts, illustrations, and photographs. This curriculum is designed to equip you with dynamic tools to successfully meet the challenge of federal, state and local education reform requirements.

"The Tribal Rhythms®Curriculum is superb, important, and very badly needed." --Jonathan Kozol, author, educator.
