Love Connection: What it means to love kids over distances, through difficulty, and into powerful engagement

2020 shifted the very foundations of our profession. That shift was not without some pain. We have mourned the losses of our classrooms, the ability to authentically “see” students, and the ways that we have traditionally served them. In the face of all these losses, all of us (at some point in this journey) have longed for a return to “normal”. In this presentation, Cornelius will explore how our nostalgic reverence for life Pre-March 2020 is misplaced… that even though we we felt certain about things, that there were still too many kids and families left at the margins. During this time together, we will explore the question, “What if we did not return to normal? What if we returned to BETTER?”

Aug 19th 10:30 am - 12:00pm EST with Sara Ahmed

Being the Change

Drawing from Sara's books, Being the Change: Lessons and Strategies to Teach Social Comprehension and Upstanders: How to Engage Middle School Hearts and Minds with Inquiry (co-authored with Harvey "Smokey" Daniels), Sara will talk about the work you can do to center identity, and leverage the social skills and habits necessary to examine real issues by participating in relevant, transparent conversations. This includes self-reflection, self-interrogation, and fine-tuning our conversations and questions as we broach discourse with others.She will spend some time unpacking social comprehension principles: exploring personal identities, listening actively, being candid, becoming better informed, finding humanity in ourselves, and facing crisis together. In this presentation Sara invites you to alternate between your student-learner and adult-learner hats. You will leave with strategies and mentor artifacts of your own to start the work immediately with your students.

A Better Beginning: Nurturing ourselves and our students with supportive emotional environments

Returning to school in these unprecedented times gives us a unique opportunity to build better classrooms and schools for our children and ourselves. This session will focus on two elements of a supportive and child-centered classroom. First, this session will focus on some of the internal work we, as teachers, administrators, and school professionals, may need to undergo to face the year with hope, optimism, and joy, and with the capacity to create sustained and powerful change. The session will then focus on practical strategies to build a supportive inclusive and safe emotional environment for all children. We will discuss routines, building learning mindsets, language and teaching structures that support this work.
