Hacking School Culture: Designing Compassionate Classrooms

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

How might we define the characteristics of a compassionate educator? What do compassionate classrooms look like? How might teachers “hack” school culture, one classroom at a time? How might they cultivate self-compassion in their own lives?

Through self-reflection and group discussion, this interactive session will explore case studies of how educators are using human-centered, strengths-based approaches to create learning environments where seeking a greater understanding of themselves and others is the highest standard.

Based on the book Hacking School Culture: Designing Compassionate Classrooms, by Angela Stockman and Ellen Feig Gray, this session will highlight examples of specific tools, protocols, and evidence-based practices that teachers are testing and refining to build empathy and cultivate compassion in their own classrooms.

Participants will be invited, and hopefully empowered and inspired, to consider how they might become agents of positive change by cultivating empathy and compassion through practice.
