3 Thank you for your “Conversation about new/old curriculum” posts. These were a pleasure to read–good work! I have commented on everyone’s posts on the WordPress site. If, by accident, I missed yours, please let me know via email and send me a link to your post. If you are interested in reading your peers’ work, go here.
4 The work you did on embodied knowing, intuition and estimation, indigenous ways of knowing and mindfulness can be found here.
5 As you all know, Marika Van Dommelen from the Rick Hansen Foundation School Program will be coming to our next class to lead us in some workshop activities. I have invited her in for a few reasons, one of which is that I believe our school curriculum (broadly conceived) is largely geared at able-bodied children. Though some might argue that this is not so, I think we (as educators) often proceed with the able-bodied child in mind. I’m interested to learn how the RHF might help us shift our thinking.
6 Please bring your laptop to class or any device that allows you to access the internet.
Please email me if you have any questions or feedback related to the course.
