Bonus: Summit: Connecting with Students for Greater Well-Being w/ Monte Syrie
Join Monte Syrie - a proponent of student relationships who operates a daily educational reflective blog at LetsChangeEducation.com. Monte serves as an adjunct professor of education at Eastern Washington University, and as a high school English teacher and department chair at Cheney High School in Cheney, Washington.
In this interactive discussion, we will discuss connecting and relating with students to improve well-being, both from a resource and systemic perspective.
Participants will be posed with these questions, but the conversation will take us on a journey of its own:
What are some practices or systems that get in the way of connecting, or are disconnecting, students and educators?
How can we foster a class/school culture where students listen, learn, and support one another?
How can we systemically change our class/school to support learners and their social/emotional well-being?
