Radically Reimagined Relationships: The Foundation of Engagement

For the past year and a half, the Astra Center for Innovative Education and Center for Inspired Teaching have been collaborating on a project to figure out what makes engagement-based education possible. It’s been informative, inspirational, and exciting to see the beautiful work that schools are doing to create learning experiences that foster empathy, critical thinking, and community.

As the report title suggests, in the most engaging schools that we visited, we found a core commitment to radically reimagined relationships. In the report, we explain what we mean by “radically reimagined” and how this core commitment is reflected in everything that happens in the life of the school — for students, staff, families, and community members alike.

We encourage you to read it, let us know what you think, and tell us about which schools that we should visit next.
