Ellen Schwartz Event ‘Making Space for Active Learning: The Art & Practice of Teaching’ at 6pm, Friday Sept 12September 6th, 2014
Local author Ellen Schwartz discusses her new book Making Space for Active Learning: The Art and Practice of Teaching.
“This is a book about values and approaches to teaching that are now under fire, a book about teachers who have, through exhilarating collective work, created space for the practices tat build classroom communities and honor the individuality of children. As you listen to these stories I hope you will be moved to join the conversation, reflecting on your own practice and the children who intrigue you,” – Helen Featherstone, Associate Professor Emerita, Michigan State University.
This book will inspire new and veteran teachers to “make space” for children’s interests, for teaching as relational and intellectual work, and for new insights and ideas. The authors introduce the Prospect Center’s Descriptive Review of Practice, a collaborative inquiry process that provides an opportunity for teachers to examine their practice and gain new perspectives from other participants.
See you here at six!
