This resource comes with all the tools you need to engage brain based roundtables, caring circles, or robust communities that break bread together.

Copy materials in this resource and file in a binder, for easy access.

Every two weeks, or at preferred intervals, invite seven participants to your interactive roundtable. Divide larger groups into several smaller roundtables with a facilitator to lead each. Use questions and brain tips provided here to spark a discussions on roundtable topics.

Two-footed questions and tools included here are each designed to

•Ensure that all participants speak up and feel heard

•Welcome participants of diverse backgrounds

•Value all responses, even those that differ

•Identify concrete takeaways that people can apply

•Build a culture of curiosity and adventure together

•Lead with a brain tip and then pose key question

For example, question one asks: What one vital belief helps you most when a challenge arises? Then refer to the related brain tip to define intuitive or intrapersonal IQ. Use a talking stick to share experiences and consider how facts and insights will lead to innovative improvements in each participant's setting.

You may wish to choose how food and drinks could be obtained at roundtables. I provide both. Then invite quests and participants who will come open to both learn and help lead the interactive discussions around your table. Expect fun, depth, and brain based wonder, as described in the video overview of this product!

Hopefully these ready-to-roll brain-based materials will benefit your learners and leaders as they do mine at middle, secondary, university levels and beyond.

Do follow my TpT site and keep up with brain-friendly materials to enhance your class.
