Tribes Learning Communities Agreements

Students learn a number of collaborative skills so they can work well together in long-term (tribal) groups. The focus is on the subject: you will receive a copy of Jeanne Gibbs` 432-page book Reaching All by Creating Tribes Learning Communities, a participant review, a graduation certificate and documents that will allow you to implement Tribes in your post-school learning centre. Monitoring and support are available so that your collaborators can intensify the tribal process throughout the year and at all levels of the after-school program. Learning in a culture of care called Tribes motivates and supports high schools to make the development and learning needs of young people – at this most critical stage of their lives – the centre of gravity of the entire school community. A beautiful sentence of 10 songs written, sung and played by Red Grammer. Singing “I think you`re wonderful,” “listening,” “teaching peace,” “Barnyard Babble” and others support the same thoughtful principles and enjoyment in Tribes communities. (COMMAND CODE: RED-PEACE CD) REFLECTION is important! If you start the year with a fun and enjoyable experience for your students, you also need to agree on each strategy. Otherwise, you only play games or do funny things. Aim to ask content (learning), collaboration (agreements) and a personal question in your reflection. For the Energizers proposed in the following tables, the opportunity to reflect (tell) students how well they have solved the problems, the agreements honored, will focus entirely on the task, etc. If students better comply with the four agreements and cooperate, teachers gradually transfer responsibility to the tribes so that members can set their own goals, monitor progress and solve problems.

Teachers learn to integrate into the curriculum through active learning strategies to encourage students to learn and demonstrate peer leadership. There is a clear planning process for implementation throughout the school or throughout the program. College teacher groups and leadership teams are being developed to create a professional learning community and improve program planning, problem solving and authentic evaluation.
