Do you have a strong desire to enrich the lives of the students you teach through meaningful conversations, but struggle to know how to get them talking?

Encouraging and helping students to engage in open and interactive discussion can be challenging, especially if their perspectives differ. This is why it’s important for educators to provide a supportive space to explore and discuss topics such as environmental issues, diversity, inclusion, money, success, love, and LGBTQ2.

Classroom circles help students learn empathy, compassion, and that everyone deserves the opportunity to speak, be heard, and be respected.

In this interactive workshop you will learn:
*The four types of conversations (4 D’s) and how they differ
*The importance of encouraging students to voice their opinion, speak their truth and listen attentively to the perspectives of others
*How to facilitate a great classroom community circle that supports the BC *Curriculum Core Competencies for communication, thinking and personal & social development
*Tips and tools on what makes a great leader/facilitator and how to put that into practice
*Why celebrating our uniqueness is important and necessary

Target Audience: Elementary & High School Educators.
