Teacher Tom: Teaching & Learning from Preschoolers
Starts: February 24, 2018 Ends: February 24, 2018

Tom speaks about how children, through their play, learn the bedrock habits and principles of living as joyful, empowered, and engaged members of a community. He begins by discussing the purpose of education in democratic societies and how and why we have managed to veer so far from the original intent, which is to educate citizens capable of contributing to the grand experiment of self governance. In this full-throated support for play-based education, he details through his illustrative classroom stories and examples exactly how his curriculum works. Participants will learn the benefits of introducing these playful principles to their own students, the hallmarks of what makes a good “citizen” both in a classroom as well as a democracy, the traits and habits required for self-governance, and practical tips on how to implement these ideas in their own classrooms. It is an inspiring, often touching, often hilarious, and always eye-opening presentation.

In addition to this keynote, Tom will discuss “Speaking with Children so They Can Think” and “Story Time with Teacher Tom".
