Descriptions of Classes
ROCK classes are informed by research in neuroscience, psychology, literary studies, education, creative writing, religious studies, and contemplative practices. Faculty are engaged, compassionate, and deeply motivated to make the world kinder and brighter, in service to one student at a time. As Houston Kraft writes,
"We need a revolution in the way we think, talk, and act in Kindness... A Kinder world is an urgent priority. We must redefine Kindness to acknowledge it as an essential quality for a functioning world. It cannot be a nice-to-have. We have to declare it a must-have. A must-teach. A must-practice."
In this representative sample, students in Jamie Wilson's course showcase their accomplishments in teaching kindness, compassion, and empathy through play with elementary school students.
