Healthy relationships are one of the keys to fostering positive school culture, so says Roland Barth (read his 1990 work Improving Schools From Within) and Michael Fullan (Leading in a Culture of Change). I do my part to bring teachers together by incorporating team-building activities into my faculty meetings, workshops, and curriculum writing sessions. One such activity is the Toxic Waste Exercise. I participated in this team-building activity with colleagues in Little Silver when I was a Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction and quickly sought to facilitate it in my current district because it so effectively brought us all together to solve a fictional problem. Materials can be purchased from The Wilderdom Store. Go to the following link to read a full description of the task: http://successfulschools.blogspot.com
