Emergent curriculum brings together the joys of childhood and learning by fostering the unique passions and interests of a group of children to create a memorable and developmentally appropriate study. Please join Teaching Beyond the Square’s educational coach, Yeshnaya Dougherty, for this special on-going workshop where she will help you develop a structure for your classroom that can empower and inspire you and your students to co-create curriculum that fosters creativity, collaboration and academic learning. The first session will be an introduction to classroom systems that promote reflective and inquiry-based learning throughout the school year. The second and third sessions will focus on how pedagogical practices such as observations of children in open-ended play and documentation of their work and ideas can support emergent curriculum. Participants will be encouraged to share documentation threads and will gain feedback and support from Yeshnaya and members of the group over the course of this series.
$150 fee for this workshop series, minimum 5 full-paying participants to run it.
