BeCool is a violence prevention curriculum which has been implemented in the Escanaba
Schools and is taught in the classrooms (K-12) by the district’s social
workers, nurse and health teachers.
BeCool teaches our students positive
ways to cope with criticism, bullying, teasing and anger in every day
situations by using educational videos, work sheets, and role plays.
BeCool uses icons to teach students
the "cool" (assertive), "hot" (aggressive)
"cold" (passive) responses to situations and how each response
affects them/situation either positively or negatively. It is our hope
that through the BeCool program our students will learn respect
for themselves and others and thus create a safer school and community
environment for all.
