Frances Willson Thompson Critical Issues Forum | University of Michigan-Flint

Frances Willson Thompson Critical Issues Forum | University of Michigan-Flint | SSW Professional Development and Learning | Scoop.it

Never give up. It is a phrase we hear often throughout our lives. Both mantra and motivator, the phrase embodies the spirit of resilience. Resilience can be found throughout our community, from the students who work hard to earn their degrees to the volunteers who lend a hand where it is needed most.

 

The 2015-2016 Frances Willson Thompson Critical Issue Forum honors those who persevere, employing grit and gumption, to make things happen. The experts who will come to the University of Michigan-Flint for this year long speaker series will examine the characteristics of grit and the notion of resilience through the prisms of socio-economic status, character, education, and ethics.

Steve Whitmore's insight:

This looks like it would be beneficial for a number of types of educators.

7 Steps for Separating Difference & Disability @OaklandSchools

7 Steps for Separating Difference & Disability @OaklandSchools | SSW Professional Development and Learning | Scoop.it

We believe that each child needs and deserves a quality education, that teachers need and deserve the training necessary to make that happen and that families are an essential piece to the education puzzle.  We understand that the task of teaching has become more challenging with budget cuts and new federal guidelines.  There seem to be more and more questions and fewer and fewer resources available to provide REAL answers.

Dr. Collier is sharing today at Oakland Schools with multi-disciplinary teams about ELLs and Special Education.

Part Two- What's Your Perspective? - Michigan Association of School Social Workers

Part Two- What's Your Perspective? - Michigan Association of School Social Workers | SSW Professional Development and Learning | Scoop.it

Perspective- our thoughts of how we view a situation. It starts world wars. It creates conflict. It divides people. Developing empathy through understanding others ends conflict and unites people.

 

 

Our perspective provides a framework for our thoughts and gives us the foundation for how we begin to form those thoughts and opinions. As we begin to build a culture of thinking in our social work practices, we want to ensure that we are that we are providing opportunities for student to take their thinking to a deeper level and to develop a greater empathetic response. The thinking routine Step Inside is the perfect platform for our goal.
