Proactive and Academic Circle Keeping
August 12, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Independent PD’s: Building Community (Staff Engagement, Parents and Families, Students)(Helping Navigate Chaotic Re-entry to School):
This workshop is for teachers, youth workers, and other professionals who wish to build community and facilitate circles at their school, organization, or agency. Participants will learn the underlying assumptions, primary features, and fundamental processes of community building circles through direct experience and reflection. Participants will have the opportunity to practice designing and keeping circles, receiving feedback on their skills, receive an informal assessment of their readiness to apply circles to their work, and obtain reference materials to guide them in implementation. It is anticipated that most participants will be ready to serve as keepers for basic community-building circles as an outcome of the workshop, but not more advanced responsive circles.
