Intro to Democratic Classroom Leadership 10/26/18
Participants learn to build three basic building blocks of how to create a democratic classroom within which students learn the 4 C’s of 21 Century skills: collaboration, communication, creativity (and innovation), and critical thinking; students become civically engaged and empathetic global citizens inside and outside of the classroom. Educators learn how to use the following sequentially integrated strategies:
Class Agreements: Create class agreements in which youth collaborate to create learning community curriculum and assessment norms, classroom environment and management- system which invites a deeper level of self and group accountability to performance and behavior.
Community Building Through a Social Justice Framework: Create a powerful team in which all students are integral to the whole; use group grades and theatre of liberation to build group integrity, cooperation, collaboration and compassion. Inside the context of building a powerfully collaborative learning community, address and discuss issues of identity and diversity effectively to raise awareness of how students can become active change agents for equity both within and outside the learning community.
Class Jobs: Share ownership and responsibility of class, teaching and community with students. Learn how to lead, not manage, students to become co-leader-teachers. The result is that students become more invested in the learning community and by extension, their own academic success and that of their classmates.
Workshop limited to 25 participants. More information here.
