Building a Democratic Society
The Role of Reflection Meeting

Thursday, February 24th

6:30pm – 8:00pm


Evergreen has a daily practice of holding a meeting to discuss a problem or idea that has emerged in the classroom. Reflection meeting is not only foundational for many intellectual and relational skills, but it also promotes the kinds of dispositions and competencies that healthy democratic citizens and societies need. During this workshop, we will look at what those skills are and how reflection meetings are part of creating a culture of democratic engagement. This workshop is online and presented by Ashley Spencer and Zenna Jandali. $30
