Educator Program Series

We offer a four day Tribes program and one day workshops including Classroom Management and Mindfulness in the Classroom. Programs can be delivered in the Greater Toronto Area as well as locations worldwide.

Wren Leadership for Educators

We offer a variety of workshops that will provide educators with a range of strategies, tactics and skills in order to help all students reach their maximum potential. These workshops are grounded in the research on effective instruction, human development, multiple intelligence theory, brain-compatible learning and differentiated instruction.

Educators Workshops Include:

Tribes (4 days or 2 weekends)

Thousands of schools throughout the United States, Canada, Australia and other countries have become Tribes Learning Communities, safe and caring environments in which kids can do well! After years of “fix-it” programs focused on reducing student violence, conflict, drug and alcohol use, absenteeism, poor achievement, etc., educators and parents now agree, creating a positive school or classroom environment is the most effective way to improve behavior and learning. The Tribes TLC® process is the way to do it.

Students achieve because they:

  • feel included and appreciated by peers and teachers
  • are respected for their different abilities, cultures, gender, interests and dreams
  • are actively involved in their own learning
  • have positive expectations from others that they will succeed.

The clear purpose of the Tribes process is to assure the healthy development of every child so that each one has the knowledge, skills and resiliency to be successful in a rapidly changing world.

Effective Instruction (3 days)

Designed for teachers who would like to further hone the skills their classroom tool kit. You will learn about the variety of ways students learn, effective instructional strategies, lesson and unit design, assessment and evaluation, feedback, motivation, framing questions, graphic organizers, classroom management and effective culminating tasks. This work is based on the work of Drs. Barrie Bennett and Carol Rolheiser: OISE.

Classroom Management Workshop (1 Day)

Designed to help teachers optimize classroom management. The workshop blends theory and practice while offering several skills, strategies and skills to assist in the day-to-day life in a classroom. This workshop will include strategies for working with all children, including those who have been identified as having an exceptionality.

Mindfulness in the Classroom (1 Day)

Gives participants an introduction to mindfulness practice for children. In this workshop you will learn and practice mindfulness and learn how to work with mindfulness practice with your students. You will also explore a variety of resources that will help you in working with children.

Emotional Intelligence for Educators

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the ability to self-manage feelings and stress and the capability to understand others. According to Daniel Goleman Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a stronger indicator of success than IQ. In these dynamic and engaging workshops you will learn ways to further develop emotional intelligence and create opportunities for: self-awareness and awareness of others, developing cohesive and productive teams, understanding your stress triggers and finding work-life balance and effective ways to communicate and manage conflict.

Emotional Intelligence for Educators Workshops (each workshop is three hours)

  • Creating the Emotionally Intelligence Classroom
  • Raising Emotional Intelligence through Effective Instruction
Personality Dimensions (0.5 Day)

Personality Dimensions® creates a framework with which to establish and communicate goals and expectations. These fun and engaging workshops highlight the values and strengths each person brings, and reinforces these in a positive framework for everyone. The goals of each session are to build the grounds for an atmosphere of mutual understanding and respect; increased communication; and the development of strong relationships within the work environment and beyond.

Using the philosophy of understanding yourself and others, Personality Dimensions® motivates and inspires team members to boost effectiveness. By the end of a Personality Dimensions® Introductory Workshop, participants will have a better understanding of themselves, appreciate why others act the way they do, and understand the effect this has on workplace roles and responsibilities.

Wren Leadership also offers more in-depth Personality Dimensions workshops that further help to develop teams through planning and coaching with the elements of Personality Dimensions.
