33. Resilient Leadership for Turbulent Times

Program: Leadership Academy:Seminar Series

Audience: building and district leaders

Dates: 10/26/2021 to 11/16/2021

New
This four session series examines the elements of leadership that are essential in developing and maintaining resilience in school leaders. Human resilience is "the ability to positively adapt to, or rebound from significant adversity and the stress it creates.” (George Everly, Jr., Ph.D 2010) The past year and a half have demonstrated, in ways no one imagined, the critical need for school and district leaders to persevere in the face of adversity. A global health crisis, a surge in attention to civil rights, principals and superintendents being challenged, and in some cases threatened over COVID requirements or the curriculum being taught in schools: any one of these may leave leaders questioning their capacity to influence teaching and learning in the ways they would like.

This program will provide participants with opportunities to explore the following:
A variety of skill sets of resilient leaders and actions for developing each
The role of optimism in developing and maintaining resilience
Managing the four personal threats to resilient leadership
Applying resilient leadership practices as a team

How can we get students driving their own learning, grappling with higher order questions, engaging in rigorous tasks and reflecting and monitoring their own progress when there are only so many hours in the day? Whether we're working with elementary or secondary students, teaching the content we have to teach while providing these opportunities is always a struggle within the time constraints we work within. Flipping the Classroom is an instructional strategy that make this possible and preserves classroom time for the high-leverage moments that make teaching and learning rewarding for everyone.

This workshop will utilize a LEARN, CREATE and SHARE format to give teachers an opportunity to learn what a flipped classroom looks like, experience the flow of a flipped lesson, plan and create a flipped lesson of their own and receive feedback on their creation from other participants.
