Cheers for Celebration Overview

You’ve seen our National Trainers perform cheers in workshops and conference sessions. Now we’re compiling them all in one place with printable instructions and YouTube videos! Why? Celebration cheers are culture and climate strategies that enhance the learning environment through supportive, engaging, and participatory social engagement. The targeted behavioral outcome is a class of students that regularly express positive social behaviors to their teachers and peers.
