Rites of Passage: Integrating transformative, coming of age experiences into class culture and curriculum

Description of Workshop:

Rites of passage are an integral part of an individual’s growth, validating their sense of self and their role within a society. Without such rituals of transition we can feel lost or isolated. And yet, when we fully undergo these sacred experiences of growth and change, our lives become more fulfilling.

This workshop will delve into the importance of Rites of Passage, not only in general society, but for a student learner in a school setting specifically. We will explore the elements common to all Rites of Passage and share how we at RCS implement this universal structure into fundamental aspects of our holistic educational experience.  

Intended audience: Educators, administrators, & parents.
