We are proud to offer the concept of Empowered Conversations to you. An Empowered Conversation is a cross between an interactive presentation and a book club that is organized and facilitated by an Empowered Education consultant. This conversation can take place in person, or via Skype.
Each Empowered Conversation lasts approximately one hour and is focused solely on one topic selected by your organization.
This can be a one-time experience, or a series of scheduled conversations. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
- Student Grading and Teacher Feedback
- Reading Whole Class Novels vs. Book Clubs or Independent Texts
- Standardized Testing
- Creativity in the Classroom
- Project Based Learning
- Group Work
- Final Exams
At that start of your conversation, your Empowered Education consultant will provide your group with a brief overview of the topic, along with a short text or video that will spur a reaction from the conversation participants. The consultant will then facilitate a thoughtful conversation among your group members that allows for personal reflection and the consideration of multiple perspectives.
