Research indicates that students who feel a strong sense of belonging have positive emotions and feelings of self-worth and social acceptance. They are more likely to have increased motivation and engagement with their learning, a higher self-belief in their chances to succeed, and will experience greater academic success.
As we start a very unique school year—one where many students and teachers have not experienced in-person learning for quite awhile—our team is hosting a free workshop to help you build community and cultivate a sense of belonging. During this 90-minute, collaborative, learning experience, you will:
- collaborate with fellow educators who are preparing to shift back to in-person learning.
- explore and experience protocols and activities to help you create a culture where all learners feel safe, seen, and valued.
- access a mini toolkit of activities that you and your colleagues can implement right away to help students have a stronger sense of belonging.
Whether you are an educator, school leader, or district administrator, you will leave the workshop with a renewed sense of community and tools to cultivate a sense of belonging for more learners, together.
