"How Are Schools Improving Hope, Engagement, and Wellbeing? Best Practices From Schools Implementing the Gallup Student Poll
Research indicates that hope and engagement are related to student wellbeing and academic achievement. But how do we apply…"
"I am in the process of introducing our high school to the StrengthsFinder method, and hope to develop a 4 week summer school program and get it approved by the administration of the summer school curriculum. Do you have something already in place…"
Sorry for the mix up -- I have spent the last two days sorting my accounts with Gallup and getting my ning account squared away. I am now one person with Gallup - so we should be fine now. We are moving forward with Strengths in our Grad program - and I have received some openness to your work with Behavior Support issues and with instructional planning. Let's hope it works out to have you come to SD --that would be great.
Keep me posted on your doc work -if I can help let me know. I used to teach the Doctoral dissertation classes and have chaired and been on committees. Be glad to help in anyway I can.
You had asked me before about some of our efforts. Our latest efforts include focusing on our GT students and our next one might be to focus on our GT teachers. Check out the BISD group for our district wide invitation to be 'Strengths Engagement Specialists'.
I am looking forward to coming up with ways to make this really effective for our kids. I think it will really open up some doors to creating stronger relationships with kids, which will hopefully lead to increased participation in classes.
Good luck with your doctoral program. I'm trying to decide which way to go with one--either Ed. Admin or a more curriculum-based one. Should be fun doing more research!
