"Looking at Learning...Again, Part 2"

Through personal interviews, teacher discussions, and classroom video footage, this workshop encourages you to analyze existing theories about how children learn, as well as your own beliefs, and then examine how those beliefs might influence your teaching. Each workshop features a different educator's learning theory and provides the opportunity to discuss, critique, and apply the ideas presented.
