Facilitation is the art of guiding but not leading, bringing learning but not lecturing, engaging but not directing. Coming from the Latin facilitar, meaning, "to make easy," the role of the facilitator is not to do for others, but to bring out the ability of a group to accomplish a goal.The materials are designed to be implemented using a facilitation model rather than a didactic model of teaching. Facilitation, as it is imagined here, allows students to take ownership for their thinking and to begin the important process of analysis – questioning their beliefs and re-evaluating their actions and behaviours in light of their emerging learning. The success of the program on which Respectful Futures is based, Respectful Relationships, has demonstrated over and over again that facilitation works to change thinking and attitudes where direct teaching/telling often fails.Below are some tips which you may find useful as you implement the Respectful Futures resource materials:
