A safe and inclusive classroom builds an environment where students feel comfortable taking risks. In order to do this, students need to spend time collaborating and getting to know each other. 

This activity can be used in the first few weeks of school or embedded into a lesson. For instance, after learning about an inspirational hero/herione, students identify what he/she values, then identify their own values. 

To begin, have students take "Choices and Values" survey. After students have identified their top values, present the Personal Values Infographic project.  Students may present infographics to the entire class or in small groups and complete the Common Values Share Out.

I used a Google Presentation with a common template and each student had their own slide. They responded to prompts and students quickly learned interesting things about each other. I can envision a second Google Presentation where students keep personal versions that may contain things they don;t want others to know about (could be shared with teacher only).
