Using Mud to Mold Your Learning
Thursday, November 9, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
In this messy interactive workshop (designed especially for teachers of preschool, kindergarten, and school age children), participants will dig deep in the mud with Instructor Christopher Nunn! We’ll learn about dorodango (the Japanese art of polishing mud balls) and prepare and get some experience with three recipes: paper clay, cardboard clay, and mud slime. We’ll enjoy a discussion about being role models of learning and thinking and document our shared ideas. As we further mold, sculpt, and play with our mud recipes, we’ll use Powerful Questions in a thinking routine to discuss how we as teachers want to mold our own learning over the next year. We’ll document some simple personal learning plans and — with our colleagues — start to identify ways we might learn the things we desire.
