Are you a day school educator interested in the importance of how children learn, in addition to what they learn? The "Responsive Classroom" approach to teaching emphasizes academic, social and emotional growth in a strong community. Elementary and middle school teachers will work closely with colleagues, while experiencing "Responsive Classroom" strategies as adult learners.

In four interactive days, educators will:

  • Examine how the Responsive Classroom proactive approach to discipline can establish a calm, safe, and engaging learning environment.
  • Create a developmentally appropriate learning environment that accounts for strengths and challenges of each age group.
  • Participate in energizers you can use in classroom
  • Teach students how to complete academic tasks, interact with classmates, and maintain routines with Interactive Modeling.
  • Give students choices in what they learn and/or how they learn to promote greater academic engagement and achievement.
  • Begin and end the day positively with Morning Meeting and Closing Circles.
There will be two tracks this year: one for elementary school (Grades K-5) educators and one for middle school (Grades 6-8) educators. This workshop is only open to educators in New York schools. 

All workshops have a cost, unless otherwise indicated. No one will be turned down due to cost. If you have any issues making a payment in full, please email Judy Oppenheim.

A cholov yisroel meal will be served with each workshop.
