Do you view students as contributors or consumers? It isn’t any individual’s or organization’s job to develop contributing, caring and healthy young citizens. If it’s true that all kids are our kids then everyone has a role to play. Educators may not realize all the great things they are already doing to build students’ strengths. At the same time, we can all be more intentional using a strength-based approach to working with youth and tapping into the power of gratitude. Join host John Linney for this special abbreviated holiday show to re-invigorate your teaching and improve your ability to teach and reach young people.
We take a break in our traditional show format this week to discuss a strength-based focus on youth and education. Host John Linney shares his experience from a recent trip to work with over 300 staff members that will remind you of the importance of focusing on gratitude and appreciation for people, experiences and the opportunities around us.
The Inbox segment returns next week. If you have a question or topic you’d like to see addressed in a future segment please send it to EdspirationPodcast@gmail.com.
