Second Monthly Conference Call-
First one was a great success!
A few points we covered: We provided space for one of our members, Dave Ketter, to unpack his latest challanges in a public high school, and collaborated to reflect on a few strategies to put into place to address the need for a shift in the classroom culture. Spiral wizardry, shadow work and other sundry methods were part of the mix.
