I love getting out and about – facilitating workshops all over New Zealand.
Current Workshop Dates:
Saturday, 30 March, Sierra Motel, 26 Western Hills Drive, Whangarei
The Intentional Teacher 9.00am – 4.30pm
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).
Children learn best by play and their play should be free. Teachers need to be thoughtful, planful, purposeful and to respond intentionally to children’s learning.
During the course of this workshop we will be exploring planning and assessment for learning and how to authentically respond to children’s learning with sensitivity and respect. We will also be discussing how to invite more parent and whanau participation in their child’s learning and assessment.
This is a practical hands on workshop so please bring along some of the assessment and planning documentation that you are currently working on.
