Peace Learning Circles (formerly Tribes Learning Communities)

  1. Attentive listening
  2. Appreciations/no “put downs”
  3. Mutual respect
  4. The “right to pass” or participate

As students become better at honoring the four agreements and working together, teachers gradually transfer responsibility to the tribes, so the members can set their own goals, monitor progress, solve problems, and achieve success through project learning.
