Under which programming stream will your content best fit?
Navigating the Current: What is in the waters of progressive practice right now? What historical or contemporary struggles make it difficult to navigate or implement progressive practices in a variety of educational institutions? What promising new streams of thought might buoy progressive education that we have not yet fully explored? These sessions will provide participants with stories, experiences, and practical wisdom for negotiating a variety of challenges and opportunities in progressive education. We encourage sessions that explore areas such as: Wellness; Social & Emotional Learning; Restorative Justice, Equity & Activism; Identity & Allyship.
Channeling the Future: What does the future of progressive education look like? What are the stakes? How do we apply this work to our classrooms and in larger communities? How do we chart new courses in ways that are collaborative, empowering, and inclusive? We encourage sessions that provide participants with: practical, “oars-in” strategies to “do” progressive practice in any school, any classroom, anywhere; visioning strategies for implementing changes; strategies for sustaining the work, even in choppy waters.
