Alliance Summer 2020 Professional Development
The Alliance for Public Waldorf Education is offering Summer Professional Development designed for the Public Waldorf Community
July 6-10, 2020: Grade Level Cohorts EC through 8th: Picture of the Grade, Math, Literacy, Science, & the Arts.
Week one is designed for teachers in schools working out of the core principles of Public Waldorf Education, and the schedule reflects the professional development we believe will be most supportive in preparation for entering the classroom. The instructors have all been involved with schools working out of these principles and look forward to forming cohorts specific to each grade in the morning course. The courses in math, literacy, and the arts will form as cohorts combining two grades. Please expect to participate in all the courses for your grade, as the instructors are working together to build up a complete picture. Our hope is that new friendships will form, new insights and practical skills will be gained, and that participants will leave feeling refreshed and enthusiastic to begin teaching their grade.
July 13-17, 2020: Personal and Professional Development Classes designed for Public Waldorf Teachers, Administrators, and Supporters.
Week Two of the Professional Development offers a combination of theory and practice for educators working out of the core principles of Public Waldorf Education. Designed for all members of the Public Waldorf Community, participants can choose from a variety of offerings, including sessions in Child Development, Anthroposophy, Special Education, Equity and Diversity, Critical Issues in Race, Gender, and Sexuality, Standards Integration, as well as Handwork, Eurythmy, World Languages, Technology, and Games and Exercises for Early Childhood.
Additions and changes to the schedule are possible, please check back for updates. If money and or time are an obstacle to your participation please reach out and we can work to customize your experience.
