If the keynote session focused on WHY we need to shift our lens to a strength-based approach in schools, this breakout session will focus on the HOW and WHAT of this shift. The following topics will be discussed:
- how to determine the strengths of our students and staff
ideas to move to a strength-based model in schools
- ways to honour and recognize the strengths of our students
moving from MY students to OUR students
- school-wide activities that build on the strengths of students and staff
- providing opportunities for collaboration and leadership in areas of strength
The session is designed for educators that want to create change beyond their classroom walls; participants will walk away with practical ideas that can start an immediate shift to a strength-based culture in their school.
