Closing the Relationship Gap
(3 Part Virtual Series)
"We can't close achievement gaps until we first close relationship gaps!"
Creating strong educational environments for ALL learners continues to be at the forefront of conversations with school systems across the globe. In his groundbreaking book, Visible Learning: A Synthesis of Over 800 Meta-Analyses Relating to Achievement (2009), Professor John Hattie set out to identify which strategies and innovations have the greatest impact on student achievement in schools.
His research, which synthesized findings from over 50,000 educational research studies on 236 million school-aged students found teacher-student relationships have an effect size of .72. This means strong teacher-student relationships lead to almost two years of student growth in one year's time.
That being said, there still continues to be a gap that exists in schools today regarding relationship development and the intentionality in how that is done. Based on Greg Wolcott’s best-selling book, Significant 72: Unleashing the Power of Relationships in Today’s Schools and his forthcoming book, Closing the Relationship Gap: Radically Redefining the Role Relationships Play in Today's Schools, this workshop brings Hattie's research to life in every school and every classroom.
Wolcott will help educators not only understand the importance of relationships within learning, but also provide practical strategies and tools to ensure teachers have the techniques need to ensure every child thrives.
As a result of attending this workshop, educators will:
