Developing the Effective Schools Correlate: Positive Communication within the School, Home, and Community depends on how we view positive interactions through our understanding and development of compassion, forgiveness and altruism. 

As you, your peers, parents and community members discuss ideas about the core of what makes a positive professional learning network of school, home and community, please consider these questions.

As you answer these questions, analyze your uncensored ideas. You will help yourself learn your strengths and weaknesses as they relate to building positive communication.

1. Are you more or less likely to listen to a differing opinion from:
  • a teacher?
  • an administrator?
  • a parent?
  • a student?
  • someone with less education than you?
  • someone with more education than you?
  • someone younger than you?
  • someone your own age?
  • someone older than you?
2. How do you react when someone in that professional learning network disagrees with you?

3. Should teachers have the locus of control in parent communications?

4. How do you analyze your own biases and stereotypes?

5. If there are disagreements within the complete communication connection, which method would be most effective when resolving conflicts that relate to learning.

6. What questions, about this topic, would you ask?

Please consider these ideas as you qualify your own position in the positive communication connection.

What makes communications positive may flourish in an environment that focuses on the quality of relationships, not the power of individuals.
