Faith CoLab: Tapestry of Faith: Exploring Our Values Through Poetry: A Program for High School Youth

Spiritual Preparation

Today the group will explore the relationships between learners and teachers. As the facilitator, your role in the group is similar to that of a teacher. Think of other circumstances in which you have been the teacher. What did you learn from those situations? Is the circular model, in which the teacher is the learner and the learner the teacher, a difficult one to keep active in these workshops? One way to practice this model is to acknowledge when you have learned something from a participant or an activity. Sharing such learnings with youth models lifelong learning to participants, yet you do not want your learnings to become the focus of your time together. This workshop could be a starting point for finding a balance between these issues.
