Workshop Summary:

This workshop delves into the importance of core values as the foundation for building strong connections and fostering trust within your learning school, classroom or learning community so that relationships with ALL stakeholders are productive and so that students' learning environments and outcomes are optimal. Through engaging activities and open discussions, educators will explore how to identify and refine their core values, translate them into practical applications, and use them to cultivate a positive and collaborative school and classroom environments. In turn, educators will be able to learn these skills and teach them to the students they serve to create cohesive learning teams.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will be able to articulate the importance of core values in establishing a thriving learning community.
  • Educators will identify their core values and how they influence their teaching practice.
  • Participants will explore strategies for fostering connection and trust with students, colleagues, and families based on shared values.
  • Educators will develop strategies to foster positive connections with students who have diverse backgrounds and learning styles.
  • Educators will design and implement classroom practices that build trust and promote student engagement.

Session Outline, Background, Details:

  • Introduction: Defining Core Values and their impact on learning communities.
  • Self-Reflection: Identifying Personal and Professional Core Values.
  • Collaboration: Exploring Shared Values and Building Trust.
  • Action Planning: Integrating Core Values into Daily Practice.
  • Sharing and Reflection: Collaborative strategies for building a culture of trust.

Strong, positive learning communities depend on mutual respect, open communication, and a sense of shared purpose.  This workshop series recognizes the vital role that core values play in achieving this. By identifying and aligning with a set of core values, educators can create an environment where students feel safe, supported, and empowered to reach their full potential.

This workshop series is designed for educators of all grade levels and subject areas.  Through a mix of interactive presentations, small group discussions, and collaborative activities, participants will gain valuable insights and practical strategies for building a thriving learning community based on shared values and trust.

Stronger student-educator relationships are linked to improved academic performance, increased motivation, and reduced disruptive behavior. Trusting relationships allow educators to provide more effective feedback and personalized instruction, ultimately leading to higher student achievement.
