Real Talk with Compass Parents:
A Community Conversation about Race, Class, Gender & Culture

Thursday, March 16, 6pm
6pm dinner & childcare check-in
6:30pm-7:45pm discussion

We’ve all got questions and concerns about how to talk to our kids (and each other!) about differences and diversity. Maybe you’ve had a situation with your kids where you weren’t sure how to respond or you’ve learned a strategy that you’d like to share. We’re collecting questions so we have a head start on some of the topics we can cover during our Family Workshop. There are NO stupid questions or topics too big or small. We hope to evolve this into a series of conversations where we can explore these issues together and learn from one another’s experiences. Please join us for a moderated discussion with Compass Parents:
Irwin Chen (Pine)
Vin Sharma (Elm)
Sara McKay (Pine)
Lateefah Torrance (Oak)

Moderated by Doris Chang (Pine), an Associate Professor of Psychology, New School for Social Research

Family Workshop

  • Compass Charter School - Community Room

This workshop will focus on understanding Zones of Regulation, which is an evidenced based emotional regulation curriculum used across the school. The curriculum focuses on helping children identify what emotion they are experiencing, the zone it falls in, and then adaptively using coping skills to move in between the zones.  

All kids are learning to regulate their emotions, and this curriculum helps them learn to effectively use coping skills when experiencing overwhelming feelings to promote positive behaviors.

This event will be held in the Community Room. Dinner and babysitting will be provided! It is sure to be an enlightening workshop--we hope you can join us.
