What’s your story? Using story to design, implement and evaluate

“If we own the story we can write the ending.” — Brené Brown, author of Daring Greatly.

Through simple writing strategies, this two-hour workshop provides teachers and administrators with tools to use story to understand what they really want in the classroom, to see gaps between what they aspire to and what they practice, to design their paths forward and to evaluate progress.

This process can be used to assess what is needed to meet new Common Core goals as well as to evaluate the impact of culture in administrative settings, at the school level, at the classroom level and at the personal level.

The Wholehearted Life — Three Workshops

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light…If we own the story then we can write the ending.”                  — Brene Brown, Daring Greatly

Using Brown’s 10 Guideposts for Wholehearted Living, and taking inspiration from Daring Greatly and other texts, The Wholehearted Life is a series of workshops designed to help us own our stories, decide what part of our story we’d like to explore next, how we would like it to unfold and what steps we can take to make it a reality. We’ll use discussion, writing and meditation to guide our way.
