How might my classroom structures and learning environment build and strengthen a caring and connected school community? This workshop explores how we create learning environments where all students and teachers feel a sense of belonging within diverse communities. Using exemplars of practice, we will articulate clear reasons why caring and connected communities are essential to student learning and provide resources to support the ‘why.’ Through this workshop, we will identify strategies and develop a plan that includes a focus on continuous improvement through reflection. We will also cultivate iterative mindsets for caring and connected communities so that educators and students alike experience a sense of purpose and joy in their everyday learning.
