Staying in the conversation…

 “Human conversation is the most ancient and easiest way to cultivate conditions for change — personal change, community, and organizational change” (Wheatley 2002).  

As we examine the latest Equity Model feedback survey, we notice a trend.  Most respondents rated the post observation discussion as the most meaningful and helpful tool of the coaching.  Therefore, we want to give you the opportunity continue the conversation throughout the summer in both a relaxed and collaborative, yet courageous and honest way.

Please join us this summer on the following dates at McCoy’s from 5:00 to 7:00 PM to discuss the following TED Talks. (Works best if you view the talk before meeting).

Ted Talk 1: Wednesday, June 25th, Sir Ken Robinson How Schools Kill Creativity

Guiding Question for Discussion: How do you see this perspective intersect with Dr. Sharrocky Hollie’s cultural responsive strategies?


Ted Talk 2: Monday, July 14 Bryan Stevenson We Need to Talk About an Injustice

Guiding Question for Discussion: How do you think this connects to the institutional systems of education and your personal experience?


Ted Talk 3: Thursday, August 7th Rita Pierson Every Kid Needs a Champion

Guiding Question for Discussion: What does this bring up for you–past stories, future hopes, and growth areas?

If you would like any additional equity resources or ideas to explore this summer, contact us.
