Participate in an Online Workshop on Constructing a Democratic Classroom via Bank Street

Open to: Early Childhood and Elementary School Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: Join us and participate in an online workshop on Constructing a Democratic Classroom via Bank Street.  Routines, rules, and transitions may be thought of as providing the framework for the daily life of the classroom.  The way in which they are constructed and carried out strongly affects the social, moral, and academic atmosphere in the setting.

What does democracy mean in relation to routines, rules, and transitions?  How can children have a voice in determining them?  The ultimate goal is not simply to create structure but also to encourage the development of both autonomy and a caring community.

Note: Asynchronous work is required to successfully complete this workshop.
