TRIBES

About Tribes

Thousands of schools throughout the United States, Canada, Australia and other countries have become Tribes Learning Communities, safe and caring environments in which kids can do well! Creating a positive school or classroom environment is the most effective way to improve behavior and learning.
Students achieve because they:

feel included and appreciated by peers and teachers
are respected for their different abilities, cultures, gender, interests and dreams
are actively involved in their own learning
have positive expectations from others that they will succeed.

The clear purpose of the Tribes process is to assure the healthy development of every child so that each one has the knowledge, skills and resiliency to be successful in a rapidly changing world.

How It Works

Tribes is a step-by-step process to achieve specific learning goals. Four agreements are honored:

attentive listening
appreciation/no put downs
mutual respect, and
the right to pass

Students learn a set of collaborative skills so they can work well together in long-term groups (tribes). The focus is on how to:

help each other work on tasks
set goals and solve problems
monitor and assess progress
celebrate achievements.

The learning of academic material and self-responsible behavior is assured because teachers utilize methods based upon brain-compatible learning, multiple intelligences, cooperative learning and social development research.
