Family engagement has always been a key pillar in education. But, today more than ever, co-educating with families is essential for effective remote instruction. We’ll explore the CREATE Relationships protocol as a tool to build strong, supportive relationships within the entire learning community and especially with families. We’ll discuss practical ways to celebrate strengths, respect diversity, and extend learning with high expectations. Bring the CREATE Relationships tool to life with the Crayola Murals and Statues project. Help students think about public art and what messages art conveys. Discuss how art represents community and personal values, then design a public art plan that tells stories that need to be told.
