We're friends, too
Take care of yourself
Share, fail, support - CFS is a safe place
Respect - each other, time, ideas
Be a team
- Critical Friends Group - A teacher presents a problem or dilemma that they are currently pondering to the faculty. We then take turns asking clarifying questions to ensure a deep understanding of the situation. We also ask probing questions to help the presenter identify the tensions, paradoxes, and assumptions in the dilemma. Finally, when it is clear that we have established a shared understanding about what is going on, suggestions are made about what to try next.
- Chalice of Compliments - The Chalice of Compliments is place where teachers can write notes to their coworkers, acknowledging an inspiring effort, skill, attitude or interaction. If you see something, say something!
