In order to help your child or student achieve long-term success, have you ever thought about expanding your personal network to include professionals like Hall of Fame players Tim Brown and Nancy Lieberman? How about Super Bowl Champion and Dallas Cowboys Legend Everson Walls? If you had a chance to talk to them about building the necessary character traits needed to realize long-term success within your child or student, what would you ask them? Do you think they would have something meaningful to share with you?
What about asking successful professional coaches such as Jay Hayes of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and business executives like former Dallas mayor Ron Kirk about the key attributes needed to stay focused on one's goal of becoming a leader? Do you think they would have some interesting thoughts? What about an experienced parent that has already supported their children through financial and testing requirements needed to attend and complete college? As a parent or teacher do you think these types of relationships would be beneficial in helping in the social and emotional development of our children?
In order to answer these questions, and more, it is going to take a village to do so! We cannot do it by ourselves. As parents, teachers, coaches, and mentors we need to be able to pour into one another with a network of proven successful individuals; individuals that have successfully overcome similar battles we are currently aiming to navigate through today! More importantly, individuals who care about the development and well-being of our children! This network of love and support is called Ethos Village!
Ethos Village was created to realize the learning gains associated with participation in a virtual learning community. As a web based application, it is tailored for groups to enhance social and emotional learning by offering tools to assist in developing character, ethics, self-identity and self-worth. Within Ethos Village members will be able to take advantage of tools such as online curriculums, on-demand videos, virtual classrooms, and more.
The online curriculum is broken up by class level and gender. There is also elective curriculum that speaks to the "at-risk" population which we refer to as our "at-promise!" To reinforce the online curriculum, we developed a library of on-demand videos and scheduled seminars with successful leaders, professional athletes, and local celebrities to further engage the students while teaching the practical applications of these character traits in their individual lives. Online seminars will include but not be limited to the following subjects: college recruitment, eligibility, parent support groups, coaching network, financial literacy, and nutrition/fitness.
Two portals have been established for students, parents, coaches, teachers, and mentors. These portals are designed to be utilized by schools and/or individual households. Within these portals a customizable interface has been built to deliver information and provide a secure interactive environment. The portals are encryption protected and required password point of entry. It has always been our belief that it takes a village to raise a child. Everyone has as an assignment with Ethos!
To enhance student learning and behaviour modification, four (4) workshops have been developed for teachers and other key personnel working with elementary, middle school, and high school students. Specifically, the workshops are designed to provide training on how to use the various curriculum effectively with the students, to achieve behavioural modification and improved performance. The workshop format is very interactive and allows workshop attendees the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge as well as specific information on student activities and learning exercises that can be used while teaching this curriculum. Additionally, the workshop covers information that will assist instructors in successfully using the reflective exercises, homework activities, and journal assignments to strengthen student learning associations, thereby, influencing meaningful learning of the material presented.
Ethos Education Group is a recognized CPE provider with Texas Education Agency. Consequently, CPE credit will be given for the completion of our Online Training Seminars.
