Hilltop's Educator Discussion Series Presents:
Educating Citizens: Play-Based Learning
Wednesday, September 28th
Facilitated by "Teacher Tom" Hobson



Join "Teacher Tom" Hobson for a conversation about bringing the habits and principles of democracy and play into early years classrooms. We will begin by discussing the purpose of education in a democracy and how and why we have managed to veer so far from the original intent of education in America. We will then explore how a play-based curriculum works, using lots of examples, and consider how it can be a model for both education and democracy in action. Participants will uncover the benefits of introducing play-based principles and what it looks like when children are really learning through their play.

"Teacher Tom" Hobson is a preschool teacher, writer, speaker, artist, and author. He is best known, however, for his namesake blog "Teacher Tom's Blog" where he has posted daily for over seven years, chronicling the life and times of the Woodland Park Cooperative School and its democratic, progressive play-based curriculum.

Washington STARS hours available - please bring your MERIT I.D. number.
