What Are Saturday Seminars?
"Saturday Seminars" are monthly 75-90 minute online workshops that spotlight the impact of sharing children's learning, offered by storytellers from different communities. Designed as lead-up to the Learning Stories Conference https://hilltopcc.com/institute/lsc21/, these monthly workshops from September 2020 and May 2021 are designed to remind us to pay attention to and reflect on the voices of children. These seminars will feature voices, stories, and the lived experiences from educators around the country.

Proceeds from this series goes towards the scholarship fund for the 3rd Annual Learning Stories Conference.

Rough-and-tumble play. Is it violence? Is it non verbal communication? Is it part of child development? In my culture, its a way to tackle (no pun intended) socially constructed norms.

In this 75 minute workshop, we argue for why this play iss beneficial to children from a perception of gender norms. We'll discuss how equity and equality shape our perspective and approach to the children and adults involved. Using a story as our basis, we'll dialogue about how rough-and-tumble play is multifaceted and infused with social norms, and invisible layers that need peeling back to reveal their value and place at our schools and in childrens lives.

Why I Should Attend:

It is well documented that in the binary construction of gender, boys tend to engage in rough and tumble play more than girls. Surely, there is mixed gender rough-and-tumble play, but it can often lead to an all boys activity, and it is usually initiated by them while young girls draw away from it.

This is where risk as an educator comes into play: How many layers are we willing to pull back for girls to feel empowered to rough and tumble, and for boys to be encouraged to see their opposite gender counterparts as equally resilient and powerful as them?

Join us for a story designed to help us become proactive participants in children's lives by building our conscious actions, and the language we use.
