RedRover Readers program helps students develop critical thinking skills
Sacramento, CA (June 5, 2015) – RedRover©, a national nonprofit animal protection organization based in Sacramento, California, has had 58 Sacramento area schools participate in its RedRover Readers program.
RedRover Readers is a social and emotional learning program that helps children develop positive relationship skills through stories and discussion. Participants in the RedRover Readers program read humane-themed books with strategic questions and discussions to help children develop critical thinking skills and empathy.
On Monday June 8, 2015 at 3:30 p.m., RedRover will join students at Golden Empire Elementary School to celebrate the impact of the RedRover Readers program. Educator Alexis Sandoval from the START program entered the first RedRover Readers Impact contest on behalf of the entire school. RedRover is proud to announce that Sandoval’s students effectively communicated their changes in behaviors toward animals and the human-animal bond.
“It makes me want to just hug animals!” said a student named Taaliyah, “They actually help us, and they won’t hurt you if you treat them the way they want to be treated.”
RedRover will offer its next Sacramento workshop to elementary school teachers who want to foster empathy and compassion toward animals and help children develop critical thinking skills on August 1, 2015. Teachers will receive a free book for completing the course and four books once they have reported their classroom feedback.
