The SF Bay Area Progressive Education Network (PEN) is sponsoring an “Ignite!” evening at Christa McAuliffe School, 12211 Titus Ave., Saratoga, April 25th, 7-9 pm. The group will explore the questions: What is Progressive Education? How can it make a difference? and Why is it Important? through ten, 5 minute talks about progressive practices. Among the participants is Judy Voets, one of the founding teachers of the Open Classroom where August to June was filmed
Others include Tom Little, President of PEN and Dale Jones, a progressive public school administratoe currently working at Discovery Charter School, where Constructivism is an important guiding practice. The talks will be followed by an opportunity to meet new people, ask questions, and learn more about Progressive Education in the Bay Area. A suggested donation of $5 makes this true bargain!
