Council Facilitator Practicum

Council Facilitator Practicum is for educators who have taken Introduction to Council and are facilitating councils in their classrooms and/or with school staff. Working from participants’ experiences, this workshop explores the realities of sustaining a council practice—how to keep it fresh, engaging, and responsive. We reflect on our facilitation and leadership styles, looking at where we get stuck or flip into “default” mode, and how we can expand our capacity and awareness. We also look at how to vary the forms and modes of council to fit group needs and keep the practice vital, how to support the emergence of student and participant leadership, how to sustain and expand the practice among staff, parents, and community members, and how to deal with immediate and pressing issues within the classroom and school community as well as "turning into the skid" when a council goes awry.
