I had this idea for a Roots Mastery Board, a tool for facilitators to use to study their implementation of the four roots at their ALC.
We often talk about how everything we do comes from the […]

Endor and its home-base Open Space AVL spent all of fall 2015 in limbo transitioning between locations, so, we experimented with an online-ALC, Agile Unschooling to keep things going. I called it Agile […]

Since Open Space AVL, the co-working space that Endor had been based in last spring (and will again be based in when it reopens next month), closed this summer, I’ve been mostly working alone at home.

Just threw this post together very quickly based on an idea I had.
Please let me know what you think – especially if you try it at your ALC!
Oh – just realized ‘the soil is trust’ isn’t on there. How should that be added to the board?
Love this, Liam! I think it helps make the tools, practices, and activity of the community visibly mapped back to the roots really effectively. It’s also just a great way to see how well we are doing with these community practices and always draw them back to the “why”, which is super important.
Totally! I hope so, anyway.
Do you think Mosaic would be into trying it?
I’m just curious to see how it would play out.
@nancy @jesslm @melissamulligan @charlotte
Very cool! I love this as a facilitator tool. I think you should have the trust bit on there.
Diagrams are great too!
Yeah… I’m out in Vancouver right now, and I think one of the things the WH staff is struggling with in embracing new tools, is knowing the roots of their educational model. I think they’ve identified as Dem School / Dem process, and now with kids scattered across different campuses every day, they can’t even call a Democratic Meeting (School Council) in a place such that everyone could choose to come.
I think they’ve identified their model with their tools, rules, and processes, rather than what those were rooted in, and now to embrace new tools, it’s like they’re giving up what their whole school was about. Yet, they have to change it, but they haven’t fully integrated that and don’t know how to if it feels like it IS their model.
So… that’s another conversation for us to have out here.
Yeah it can get easy to get tangled up in that kind of thing. I imagine it would be helpful to see all your tools and processes laid out and to see how they relate to the ‘broader mission’.
Liam, I would personally be up for trying this at Mosaic.
