The Peace Learning Center Collective experience will engage teams of educators in a multi-day learning opportunity. Early sessions are meant to acquaint participants with the basic tenents of equity, social emotional learning, and restorative practices. Later sessions will offer participants an opportunity to dive deeper into the topics that resonate with them, such as culturally responsive teaching practices or the facilitation of equity circles. The experience will culminate in the creation and execution of a school or district-wide action plan towards positive change.
