Preschool Teacher and Administrator
Oken-Wright Pedagogical Consultancy
Sponsored by Exchange Press.
In this fascinating webinar, Donna King, a preschool teacher, and author of Pursuing Bad Guys: Joining Children’s Quest for Clarity Courage and Community, and Pam Oken-Wright, M.Ed., a pedagogical consultant, will tell the story of their work together on a long-term investigation of “Bad Guys.” We have all observed children playing “bad guys” in their pretend play, and grappled with whether to intervene or not, and if so, how to handle those moments. If you typically encourage creative and spontaneous imaginative play you are likely to be unsure how to constructively respond to violent imaginative play. This webinar explores a specific approach and the stories of how the approach works.
Pam will share some of the important tools and strategies she offers to teachers who hope to engage in collaborative research with children, and Donna will share stories of what it was like to try those tools and strategies.
This remarkable journey brings to light multiple streams of transformation in one story: the first ever sustained investigation for children and teachers, a courageous trust in a pedagogical companion to support the teachers’ intent, a pedagogical paradigm shift, and a renewed energy and vision for teachers and children.
Join us to:
- get a sense of what it’s like for teachers to work with a pedagogical consultant to grow their practice.
- experience, through examples of children’s visual work, storytelling and conversation, the unfolding of a research investigation into a very common and often sticky preschool issue – a preoccupation with bad guys.
- learn guidelines for growing long-term investigations that truly matter to children.
All sessions are 1.5 hours long and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
2:oo PM – 3:30 PM Eastern Time.
