Empower students to stand up for what matters

Created in collaboration with children and teens, Owning Up helps young people identify and be critical of social issues in their lives—from bullying and harassment in the classroom to systems of power and oppression in the world around them. While there is no one-size-fits-all curriculum, Owning Up takes us leaps forward by:

  • Designing sessions to be easily facilitated by a school counselor, teacher, leader, or other professional in small group settings 
  • Combining discussions, games, and role-playing to engage adolescents in the complexities of social culture 
  • Exploring critical topics such as media analysis, gender, sexual harassment, racism, gossip, and self-image

In The Press

"Owning Up is the most logical and down-to-earth curriculum I have used with my students in over ten years. Wiseman's ability to help the counselor or teacher relate to kids is unparalleled. The curriculum provides a framework with a variety of activities and lessons within each session, which allows any educator using it to make it their own. It creates a natural rhythm for the educator and the students, and this creates a safe space for honest and open dialogue. Wiseman does a great job of reminding adults that we carry our own baggage from our own adolescent years. If we can put that aside, or be mindful it exists, we can help students have a healthier middle and high school experience. If you use one curriculum this is the one you should choose, because it will transform your classroom and allow your students to talk about tough topics and still feel safe."
