How can I create a life of purpose? Few students tackle this question at school, but that is changing as purpose education programs are on the rise. These programs are transforming schools by prioritizing our shared humanity in the classroom and igniting deep learning that is grounded in students’ personal values and driven by their most meaningful goals. By inviting purpose into the classroom, teachers create a space of belonging for all students and in which teachers and students can relate more deeply to each other. Teachers get to know students better and in ways that enable them to help all students engage meaningfully with their learning.

This workshop introduces purpose as a beacon for educators seeking to create more compassionate and equitable learning environments and provide more meaningful deeper learning experiences. An investigation of purpose education programs reveals a Teaching for Purpose framework that can be applied in any school setting. After exploring their own purpose and discussing the relevance of purpose to deeper learning and equity, workshop participants will learn the Teaching for Purpose framework and work in small groups to brainstorm ways to apply the framework in their schools.
