Advocating for English Learners and underrepresented populations of students begins with leaders at all levels having productive conversations that support academic, social, and emotional success. There is power in knowing how to listen first. Presenters will model and participants will practice strategies such as perceptual positions as listening skills, points of focus affecting conversational tone, paraphrasing, and high-leverage questioning. Participants will leave with a foundation to have conversations that maximize relationships and benefit all students.
