CHILDREN’S LIVELY MINDS: SCHEMA THEORY MADE VISIBLE- POSTPONED
March 21 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Deb & Nadia will reflect on how they came to notice adult tendencies that limit children’s play and, using The Thinking Lens™ (Curtis, Carter, Pelo) they will explore how educators can, instead, work to meet up with children’s lively minds and bodies. Participants will study observations of children to identify schema explorations and brain research reflected in their play. Facilitators will plan for hands on investigations of materials and evaluate elements that invite complex play and schema explorations. Participants will learn approaches that support teachers to observe and plan for children’s competence and innate approaches to learning.
FACILITATOR: Deb Curtis & Nadia Jaboneta
“I think our staff really benefited from all the training. All the trainings allowed the staff to explore and think differently and keep up-to-date….”
