- Creating Community and Building Belonging in the Classroom: This interactive workshop will share research about the impact of belonging on developing academic and social strengths in the classroom. Strategies for building community and increasing belonging in the classroom will be demonstrated, explored and practiced together.
- Conflict Resolution and Effective Apologies: Putting Students in Charge: This workshop differentiates between conflict and bullying, introduces a 4-step process for conflict resolution, and examines effective apologies and the role they play in resolving and recovering from conflict.
- Handling Challenging Moments: Do you wonder how to respond when a student says something that sounds hurtful, mean, biased or discriminatory? This interactive workshop examines why and how our response matters when we witness these moments. We will explore specific tools that demonstrate what it sounds like to center dialogue and diverse perspectives within a learner-centered practice.
