Aletheia's June Workshops
I Play Therefore I Am
It’s play day! Everyone’s talking about the power of play. What’s the buzz about play anyway?
What if I told you to suspend all ideas of “Play For Learning” for one day?
Step outside the pedagogies and principles of play, playful learning, purposeful play etc. and discover a personal side to this natural instinct — this pillar of our human nature. Yes, I’m saying: Play is not for learning; play is for well-being.
What kind of play appeals to you? What kind of player are you?
This workshop is designed to take a splash at playfulness and see it with new eyes. Delight in its paradoxes, appreciate its characters and varieties, consider why children are so good at it, figure out how you might enjoy more play in your own life — and even become more productive for it!
I promise it will be as trivial as it is impactful :)
Discipline: Working with Partnership and Limits That Make Sense*
*Part 1 (10am - 1pm) and Part 2 (2-5pm)
We all wish to work in spaces with easy children. We want them to follow our plan, hear what we have to say, cooperate with our requests, help the day go smoothly our way.
What is your approach to discipline? Is it about teaching children how to behave, or controlling the children’s behaviour? If it’s about teaching, what exactly are we teaching?
This workshop will explore concepts and tools that we can bring to discipline situations in the classroom as well as in life. Through a series of experientials, reflections, and discussions, we will think carefully about structure, free will, cooperation, harmony, conflicts, and conflict resolution.
Our goal is for you to become more proactive than reactive in difficult moments, staying in control of yourself and in charge of the children.
JUNE Tuesdays with Aletheia
Come spend informal afternoons together to relax, chat, bond, experience, reflect, ask questions, distill thoughts, clarify concepts, or address other needs you have.
Experiential learning and practice-oriented professional skills, with elements of discovery, spontaneity, playfulness, reflection, and just good fun meeting as a group!
No preparation is needed for the session. Just get good rest, come expecting the unexpected, and bring a pen you like to write with.
