Creating a positive school or classroom environment is the most effective way to improve behavior and learning. The Tribes process is the way to do it. Students achieve because they:

  • feel included and appreciated by peers and teachers
  • are respected for their different abilities, cultures, gender, interests and dreams
  • are actively involved in their own learning
  • have positive expectations from others that they will succeed.

The clear purpose of the Tribes process is to assure the healthy development of every child so that each one has the knowledge, skills and resiliency to be successful in a rapidly changing world.

Tribes is a step-by-step process to achieve specific learning goals. Four agreements are honored:

  • attentive listening
  • appreciation/no put downs
  • mutual respect, and
  • the right to pass

Students learn a set of collaborative skills so they can work well together in long-term groups (tribes). The focus is on how to:

  • help each other work on tasks
  • set goals and solve problems
  • monitor and assess progress
  • celebrate achievements.
