P241-8109.1M19 - Building a culture of belonging through discussion and shared inquiry (VTS for PreK - 12)
Teachers know their 21st century classrooms must function on multiple levels - they must support social-emotional intelligence alongside cognitive capabilities and academic acumen, and cultivate flexible thinkers that can collaboratively problem-solve with others. Our course trains teachers in a beloved, research-backed discussion facilitation method called Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS), which is an arts- and inquiry-based approach to building a 'belonging classroom'. With VTS, teachers have a go-to method for embedding emotional, interpersonal, and cognitive skill-building within an academically-rigorous, social learning experience.

2. Visit http://bit.ly/VTS-ASPDP-Summer2019 to navigate directly to the course and enroll.
Even though course takers can enroll as individuals, we encourage them to enroll as a team so that they may practice, reflect, and learn alongside peers. Teams share an interface and can interact within the course.
$75 covers access to the course for up to 3 enrollees working as a team. Each individual must pay $100 each to make VTS Basics a credit-bearing course (1 P Credit with a passing grade). After enrolling for $175, a course taker can add up to two peers (who are also seeking P Credits) to share their course enrollment for an additional $100 each.
If you would like to form a team of more than 3 individuals seeking P Credits, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for custom pricing and a special link to enroll.
