What Can You Teach?

What Can You Teach: To Share Power, Discover Everyone’s Expertise is a 30-minute activity where participants have an opportunity to share how they can teach and lead others. Facilitators will discuss different ways of learning and knowing, including family traditions and life experience. They can prompt participants to think about what they know, such as athletic skills, design, architecture, math, fashion, writing, cooking, technology or music. For example, “My name is Jenna, and I can teach you to play the cello.” After everyone has shared something they can teach, the participants discuss common themes.
