Grades 6-12. The Owning Up Curriculum, written and developed by Rosalind Wiseman, author of The New York Times bestseller Queen Bees and Wannabes, provides a structured program for teaching students to own up and take responsibility for their behavior. The curriculum is designed for adolescent groups in schools and other settings. The Owning Up Curriculum presents a unique and comprehensive approach to preventing youth violence by targeting the root causes of bullying and other forms of social cruelty.

It addresses issues such as racism, classism, and homophobia, as well as moral courage, perseverance, and commitment to ethical behavior. Separate sessions for girls and for boys combine group discussions, games, role-playing, and other activities to engage students in understanding the complexities of adolescent social culture. A CD-ROM of reproducible program forms and student handouts is included with the curriculum.
