Program Advocacy (15 mins.)
Before we can effectively advocate for our programs, we need to clearly identify why our roles, services, resources, etc. matter. According to Simon Sinek's golden circle idea, to inspire action we must communicate the "why" of what we do.

In the appropriate AnswerGarden below, input your beliefs about your program. Why does your program matter? (20 character limit, may submit multiple responses)

Reflect and Share (10 mins.)

As you continue to think about your purpose, reflect on your school's vision and/or mission. Think about how your program supports your school's vision/mission. Take six steps and find a partner. Introduce yourself and share.



Advocacy Deliverable (60 mins.)
To effectively advocate for our programs, services, and resources we must be ready when the opportunity presents itself whether it's a timely moment with a parent in the grocery store parking lot, in the elevator with our principal, or running into a local school board member at the mall. Elevator/parking lot speeches and infographics can help us quickly convey key points to others, hopefully in a memorable way. Let's take the time, while we can get input from our counterparts across our region, to craft speeches, talking points, and visuals that we can then use when opportune moments arise.

Everyday Advocacy: Collaboration vs. Cooperation (10 minutes)
Collaboration is one of the 4Cs that we want our students to master for college and career readiness. How are we modeling collaboration for them? Are we using collaboration as a method to help us problem solve, for program implementation, etc.? Not only can collaboration help us more effectively accomplish our work, but it also acts as everyday advocacy for our programs. Each collaborative partner along with those who observe our collaborative success are potential advocates.

Take two sticky notes and write the definition of collaboration on one and the definition of cooperation on the other.

Discussion
  • How are these the same? How are these different?
  • Do teachers understand the difference? Do we?



Thinking About Collaboration (20 minutes)
Take a few minutes to think about your responses to these questions, then go to each Padlet to record your thoughts. You can record multiple thoughts on each question.

What are some of the common roadblocks that prevent us from collaborating with teachers?
