Educator Workshop 1: KEY concepts
Please note: these tools are for YOU as teachers, not yet for your students! Please do not prepare your students with this material so they can get a fresh learning experience during the Game Changers Workshops.
- PATHWAYS NET Fellowship Educator Workshop 1: Presentation from our workshop.
- Negotiation Power by Bruce Patton: Concise summary of the 7 elements.
- Seven Elements Preparation Tool: Get prepared for your negotiations.
- Game Changers Teacher Prep worksheet: Use this guide to get ready for the upcoming student workshop with your partner. Some of this information is for your own preparation, and some is necessary to share. Please fill out and discuss before your workshop.
In our workshop we compared and contrasted traditional high-low bargaining (aka “haggling”) to principled, problem-solving negotiation. What do you see below? What are the downsides of this approach? Could Andy & Dwight “play the game” of negotiation differently? What would you advise based on our recent experience?
Note that when they refer to “options,” they are referring to what we call walk-away “alternatives.”
Following our spontaneous conversation about haggling in stores and markets, we wanted to share with you the NPR video on the history of price tags:
Game Changers Workshops for students
- Site Visits: Please make sure to arrange your site visit with Rachel! We’ll come visit your school, meet with you and your principal, do a quick walk-through of your planned workshop space together, and discuss any questions you may have.
- Expectations: Share with students how the program will work and include them in planning for the day you’ll be hosting. Please don’t share with them details of the concepts we’ll explore other than to explain that we’ll be working on learning tools and skills for day-to-day negotiation for personal and professional uses (not addressing social or political issues).
- Table Assignments: Send us your student names in English organized by table assignments using the Game Changers Workshop Student List Template. Please consider which students should sit together to support one another, and which students should be separated to avoid mutual distraction. Please strive for a mix of genders at each table.
- Photo releases: Please send a signed Photo Release for Parents for each student participant.
- Our NET Fellowship alumnae Dania Masarwa & Sara Dayan have put together the Game Changers Active Observation Tool for Teachers to help you spot ideas and connections relevant to your teaching practice during your time in the Game Changers student workshop. We understand that you’ll be preoccupied with logistics at times, especially on the day that you’re hosting. Please use the tool together with your partner teacher to capture relevant ideas and insights. This is not homework, but a tool to help you make the most of the experience!
- Please share with us any photos that you or your students take.
- Please dedicate 30 minutes of class time within two weeks to help students complete their post-workshop survey.
- Kindly complete the brief post-workshop survey for teachers.
- Together with your partner teacher, schedule a 30 minute video conference with Avi to review your Game Changers experience and to brainstorm ideas for the second workshop focusing on creating teaching activities (to be held April 2, 2019).
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
