Learning Circles: A way to build powerful and effective learning communities. The structure builds the sense of community and provides rails to run on for hard conversations. If you have ever been frustrated with conversations that seem to go no-where this may be a breath of fresh air. The group comes together around each person’s chosen value. The topic (violence, discrimination, environmental justice) is then discussed through the lens of each value selected. Thus multiple perspectives are focused on the issue.
From there each person makes a commitment to one small action toward resolving the issue. Personalities get out of the way in these conversations because it is the value lens that is brought forth. Don’t miss out!
