The Art of Awareness in the Classroom: Cultivating the Capacity for Observing and Perceiving the Children in Our Care
Saturday, June 22, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Presentations by Ray Silverman, Angela Rose, and Kathy Schrock
In this era of standards and accountability, education has become increasingly focused on testing and scores. But working with children means working with changing states and qualities of being that cannot be quantified and measured. In this workshop we will explore ways of honing our skills of observation so that we are better able to perceive and respond to the children in our care. The classroom is also a place where our egos can get hooked and we can find ourselves reacting in ways we may later regret. How can we prepare ourselves internally for leading a class of children and creating a safe environment where children feel seen? Afternoon sessions include artistic workshops to practice qualitative perceiving (watercolor painting or clay modeling), and the opportunity to sign up for a one-on-one coaching session with Ray Silverman on personal growth challenges within the context of the classroom.
