Changemaker Schools Diagnostic

Before you begin "Activating Emapthy: A Roadmap to Changemaker Classrooms" we ask that you answer some questions about your school. If you do not work in a school, answer the questions to the best of your ability based on your work with children (i. E. The children you parent, mentor or educate in a non-school setting). All of your answers will be kept anonymous, and the more honestly you answer these questions, the more we can customize your course experience. At the end of the diagnostic, you will receive a recommendation of which unit to take. You are welcome to take all units, but pay special attention to the unit recommended by your diagnostic results. *Please note that your results will be e-mailed to you and will not be accessible on the cou
