Join educators from The Advent School for presentations and discussion about important topics in education. Our evening presentations are from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. These evening seminars are free and open to all. An RSVP is needed as space is limited.
First Grade teachers will share how a group of teachers developed a comprehensive social-emotional curriculum that proactively teaches skills, like positive conflict resolution, self regulation, empathy, and emotional management. Now implemented school-wide, this curriculum is a reflection of our mission, our desire to support students with differing needs and our belief that children have the capacity to effect positive change in the world.

Educators will share examples of long-term investigations in Pre-K, Kindergarten, and Third Grade classrooms that highlight how we infuse contemporary issues of power, gender, and race into the curriculum.
Kindergarten and Science teachers will share an emergent study of strength and the multiple forms it took, including an exploration of physical strength, emotional strength, and the strength needed to make social change. This long-term investigation is an example of how we integrate principles from the Reggio Emilia approach with scientific concepts and the School’s social justice mission. Participants will also get hands-on with materials as they explore, design, and test “strong” structures. Click here to RSVP.
