About AMAZE
AMAZE elementary  delivers practical, classroom tools, and staff development supporting adults to engage children (grades 1-6) in respectful, meaningful discussions around bias and bullying. Bias is a major driver for bullying, and children are surrounded by  bias from a very early age. Discussing bias can be daunting for adults, and tools and training to lead these discussions have been lacking. We solve this problem with a complete program providing the tools, training, and support to help young people develop a positive sense of self, navigate respectfully and empathetically amongst differences, gain the insights needed to identify and name bias and practice the skills needed to stand up to bullying, teasing and exclusion for themselves and others.
AMAZE elementary uses high quality children’s literature, discussion questions, and classroom journaling  to explore diversity through the unifying lens of family. It sensitively covers themes of race/ethnicity, socioeconomics, aging, adoption, immigration, gay and lesbian family members, divorce/break-ups, religion, disability, and bullying. The program is aligned with academic standards; develops critical thinking; and supports social emotional learning, anti-bullying, and family engagement initiatives.
