LVUSD is proud to be authorized to provide the Adaptive Schools Foundation
training to a limited number of out-of-district participants.
The Adaptive Schools Foundation Seminars take participants beyond the idea of
professional learning communities to the actual implementation, describing
specific ways to weave the collaborative fabric of a faculty, develop group member
skills, and acquire the principles and understandings to engage in a continuous cycle of team and individual improvement. Adaptive Schools is the “how” of professional learning communities: how to behave in groups, how to lead them, and how to facilitate them for improved leading, teaching, and learning.
In the four-day Adaptive Schools Foundation Seminar, participants will develop:
An increased capacity to initiate, develop and sustain high functioning groups
New lenses for diagnosing the stages and phases of group development
An expanded repertoire of practical facilitation tools
Understandings of when and how to engage groups in dialogue and discussion, the limitations, forms and values of each
Skills to move groups beyond consensus to common focus
Ways to value and use dissension, argument and conflict
Strategies for keeping group members on track, on topic, and energized.
