Week Four

Read the chapters Effective Leadership and Mindset.

Answer the end of chapter questions in Voxer OR on Twitter. Be sure to use #DivergentEDU if you go the way of the Twitters (if you have room to tag me, @froehlichm, please do that, too!).

On social media, post your favorite leadership quote with an explanation as to why that quote resonates with you. Tag one of your favorite leaders while you’re at it. Please use #DivergentEDU so I can find it!

Challenge: Reflect on how specifically your leadership can make you feel supported. If they said to you, give me some examples of activities or attitudes that bring on a feeling of support, what would you say? Create a blog post or reflective video, hashtag it with #DivergentEDU and post it to social media. Tag @froehlichm if you have space!

Week Three

Read the chapter The Feels of Climate and Culture.

Answer the end of chapter questions in Voxer OR on Twitter. Be sure to use #DivergentEDU if you go the way of the Twitters (if you have room to tag me, @froehlichm, please do that, too!).

On social media (either Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or whatever you chose) tag someone who you have a solid, positive professional relationship with and state how it has gotten that strong. Remember to use #DivergentEDU so I see it!

Go back and review the answers to the #DivergentEDU slow chat from last week. Answer or reply if you’d like!

Challenge: Find a quote about the importance of relationships in education that resonates with you (doesn’t need to be from the book…any quote from anyone). Write a blog post or do a video as to why that resonated with you and what we can learn from the quote. Tweet it out and use #DivergentEDU (tag me too please if you have room @froehlichm)

Week Two

Read the chapter Culture and Climate: Creating a common thread.

Answer the end of chapter questions in Voxer OR on Twitter. Be sure to use #DivergentEDU if you go the way of the Twitters (if you have room to tag me, @froehlichm, please do that, too!).

Participate in the slow chat on Twitter throughout the week. Each day I will release a new question using #DivergentEDU. Answer using the corresponding question number (Q1:A1) and the hashtag.

Challenge: Create a meme or booksnap with a quote from the book that resonated so far. If you’re unfamiliar with Tara Martin’s #booksnaps, you can find information here. Tweet it out with the reason why it resonated with you with the #DivergentEDU hashtag.

Week One

Read the preface, foreword, and the Brick by Brick Building of the Hierarchy.

Make sure you have been added to the Voxer group. Message me ASAP if you have not been added by January 6th. The end of chapter questions will be discussed there.

Introduce yourself in the Flipgrid here. We are going to be BFFs for six weeks.

Challenge: Write a blog post, do a Facebook Live, Periscope, or any kind of video of your choice, based on an assumption you know you often make about learning, relationships, or people. Reflect on ways you can challenge that assumption as part of being a divergent thinker. Share the link in the Voxer group. As an additional challenge, Tweet out the link and tag me (@froehlichm) in it as well as use the hashtag #DivergentEDU
