The Intentional Teacher

February 22 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Intentional teachers are thoughtful, playful, purposeful and to respond intentionally to children’s learning.

Research has shown that outstanding teachers are intentional, they do things on purpose. They are always thinking about what they are doing and how it will foster children’s development and produce real and lasting learning (Epstein, 2007).

Discover what it means to be an “intentional teacher” during the course of this workshop.

This course will cover:

  • What it means to be an intentional teacher.
  • How to be more intentional in your practice.
  • “What learning matters here?”
  • Planning, assessment for learning, documentation and how to authentically respond to children’s learning with sensitivity and respect.
