Equipping Students with Tools for Positive ChangebyTrace Lynne Ragland
After investigating violent crime data and consequences of its resulting trauma in their local communities, students learn about risk and protective factors of violent victimization and perpetration. Students research tools that will help weaken risk factors and strengthen protective factors, ultimately developing projects to affect positive change in both their personal lives and their communities.
