This is An Invitation to Join Us in Canton, Ohio, for...
Voices of Learners
Do you wonder what makes extraordinary schools possible? Do you have a
story about an extraordinary school, program, student or teacher that
you would like to share?
VOICES OF LEARNERS is a multi generational three day gathering of
students, parents, educators, administrators and community members. The
purpose of this gathering is to appreciate, collectively take in, and
collaboratively build on peak learning experiences. It is a chance
to Show, Know, and Grow the best in learning and development.
VOICES OF LEARNERS is at three different schools in Stark County Ohio.
Come join us on October 13, 14, and 15, 2009 at GlenOak High School,
Timken High School Commons and Stark State College as we explore
outstanding examples of strength focused learning. What are the
multiple ways of Showing, Knowing, and Growing the best in learning,
teaching and developing?
Each of the three days is sited at a different school and will have
about 100 people. About half of those in attendance will be young
people. The rest of us are educators (or teachers), parents,
administrators, community members and others who are excited about
strength focused approaches and schools. Each day's planning is being
lead by the three schools' staff.
Each day will begin with an Appreciative Inquiry.
There will be special tours and learning opportunities on October 12 and 16.
You can visit Canton's award winning Early College, Project Rebuild,
Choices, Pegasus Farm, Cleveland's The Intergenerational School or
several other special places for learning.
Additionally, Positive Change Core will be hosting an evening
"Community of Scholars." A group of thought leaders will discuss
innovations and emergent theory in Strength Focused Learning. Space for
this event will be limited.
