Hilltop's Institute Evening Discussion Series Presents:
Learning Stories, Part 2: The Writing
Tuesday, September 29th
Facilitated by Tom Drummond
The deep value of creating Learning Stories in the classroom, and the heart of becoming a professional educator, is participating in discussions with others about what a story signifies, brainstorming ideas of what adults might provide next, and imagining where such opportunities might lead in the future. Picking up where our Evening Discussion in March left off, this evening session is devoted to those who already understand what Learning Stories are and wish for time to write them in cooperation with other educators. We will be watching video clips, selecting what is important for a story, and deciding how to put a complete Learning Story together.
For 36 years Tom Drummond taught early childhood education at North Seattle Community College where he often videotaped interactions in the Laboratory Preschool. He replayed key recordings for the staff to co-construct an understanding of values, facilitation, and curriculum. Today his materials are online attomdrummond.com.
