Educators New to Quakerism New York City [Day 1]

Mon, 4 Feb 2019 14:00:00 GMT - Mon, 4 Feb 2019 23:00:00 GMT

Details & Registration

2-day residential workshop
February 4-5, 2019
Monday (9am - 9pm) - Tuesday (7:30am- 3pm)

Educators New to Quakerism workshops give teachers and staff new to Friends schools the opportunity to explore the Quaker identity of their schools. Through engaging presentations and discussions with seasoned Friends school educators on topics such as Quaker history, beliefs, testimonies, and meeting for worship, participants gain a deeper understanding of the strong spiritual roots of their schools.

Learning more about Quakerism gives me a much better understanding of how I as a teacher can interact in the lives of my students and make my class a "meeting for learning."

Schools report that participants return to their communities with a greater understanding of the mission of their schools and renewed energy and enthusiasm for strengthening the Quaker dimension.

ENTQ workshops are highly experiential
Participants registered for this workshop are asked to make a clear commitment to arrive on time and stay the full span of the seminar. Each person's part in building community and creating the workshop's tone and content is crucial. Staying for the entirety of the workshop is encouraged for all, as fellowship and community building are part of the experience. Participants often report learning as much or more from each other as from the facilitators, which is really the point.

Growing a Future Ready Library
