A Fresh Look at School-Wide Holistic Education

Friday, March 23 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM

Presenters: Andrew R. Willemsen, Ali Fields

Target Audience: All

Imagine an approach to holistic learning that brings balance to the curriculum and elevates each student’s self-awareness. This workshop focuses on the “7 Cs”—curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, communication, collaboration, citizenship, and compassion—that infuse the curriculum with renewed purpose and joy. You’ll learn how to revitalize your own practices, using student portfolios to initiate a reflective shift in administrator, teacher, and student mindsets.
