Open space sessions
Creating data for TRJ
This was a session with Andrew LInes and a group of other teachers to look at the potential and possibilities for creating data to look at whether TRJ adds value. Looking to create a survey that addresses this simply and provide more concrete evidence of the success of programmes. Looked at TRJ content and also resilience.
- Encourage rituals for boys classes –sacred space and talking stick
- Buy in from the staff
- Co-ed ”social” whole group to small groups to “speed dating” –boys provide food, teachers provide discussion questions- preparation required for communication
- Male/female teacher swap –what are girls and boys looking for?
- Reflection day together (co-ed)
- Pub Lunch
Balancing between teacher and TRJ teacher
- What are my roles? Eg someone’s daughter, someone’s mum…..
- Negotiate the boundaries, student involvement in determining consequences
- Be friendly, not necessarily a friend
- Use the talking stick – it’s absorbing what we are hearing and stays here. Respectful – rather than confidential.
Lego activity – building a simple structure by describing to another.
Conquering the C’s – Te Waka points.
Time for hanging out on camps – works well. Time to be bored – did you enjoy – not relevant.
