Icebreakers:

1. On a scale of 1 to 10, describe your member's level of engagement? Engagement might mean different things to each of you. Your member's ability to organize. How closely they are paying attention to the issues. How many members come out to events, workshops, and meetings. Etc.

Here are the questions we used at the World Cafe Coffee and Convo event for FB group users on Sunday, March 13, 2016:

Guiding theme: This is all about the “dialogue inside.” The dialogue inside yourself. Inside your local association. Inside NJEA. Whatever dialogue is occurring there, that’s natural. And that's OK. But -- if that conversation becomes reality for you, then that becomes alive in the world. If you are being critical always of yourself . . . of your local association . . of NJEA . . . how will you open up your heart to invite others' gifts and the beauty that they have to come in to the work you need to do? The work of the dialogue?

Round 1: NEED: What are the challenges and opportunities we are facing in regards to NJEA’s social media presence?

Round 2: PURPOSE: Who is not in the room today, and how do we bring them in?

Round 3: PEOPLE: If NJEA’s social media efforts were to live up to their fullest potential, what do you dream (or vision) is possible?

World Cafe on Classroom management:

1. When thinking about classroom management and student discipline, what is alive for you -- right now?

2. If you had a magic wand, what would you change about your classroom environment?

3. What do you think is most important to remember as you design a classroom management plan?
