I was honoured when I was asked to be one of the keynotes for The Reform Symposium (#RSCON10 on Twitter) and I will be speaking about the process and importance of our Identity Day at Forest Green School (by the way, this is a totally free conference put on by some amazing people). This was an amazing day for our school and was important for character education/leadership development.
I will be addressing the following items in my presentation:
- The importance of finding every student’s passion and building upon that.
- Building school culture.
- Building connections throughout the school community.
- The importance of distributed leadership within the school community.
Within character education, there are many elements that are essential to building a strong program, and I know that I will miss some that are key to your own learning. What I would love from you, are some key questions that you would like to learn about in either the development of my school’s character education program, or the development of your own. I would like to guide as much of my presentation on this day based upon your questions.
Thoughts? Questions? I would love to hear from you.
