AN AAIE SUMMER WORKSHOP FOCUSED ON SOLUTIONS
How many schools do you know that struggle to formally articulate decency, dignity and responsibility as specific aims for its students and then precisely outline how the community can work together to achieve it? How many international schools have created deep engagement about child safety and protection across the entire school community with an ethos of abuse prevention?
Join us for this three-day workshop to rethink, reimagine, and retool how we support our students to be safe, different, and better because of their experience in the international school community.
THE CONTEXT FOR THIS AAIE SUMMER WORKSHOP
With the best of intentions, overseas schools can be so focused on curricular expectations that we pay inadequate attention to integrating social-emotional learning into the life of our schools. We must not miss the opportunity to focus on our students' social and emotional competencies of engagement, health, and happiness that positively correlate to academic success.
THE AAIE SUMMER WORKSHOP LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITY:
School leaders must give greater focus to the complexities of adolescence within international schools as the key to student academic success. A key leadership outcome for any international school is intentionally building opportunities for student purpose, voice, and self-agency while finding agreement among the various school stakeholders to support and keep young people safe.
