Concentric Circles – Community Connections

Concentric circles can be used in just about every context and learning experience. This clip shows how concentric circles can be used to identify people in our community. These people are the experts that we can seek out to help guide students and create opportunities that may not have been available to begin with.

It is these people in the community that bring out the best in both teachers and students. When we draw on these skills and knowledge, new exciting pathways emerge and this empowers student learning immediately.

The benefit of this process is that it changes for every unit of inquiry as the knowledge base changes too.

Do you know the people in your community and what they can offer?
