Public Seminar: Thursday, November 7, 6:30 PM •
Speakers: NYC Teachers & Aesthetic Realism Consultants with All For Education •
As this school year begins, students feel two things: hope that they’ll be able to learn—math, science, history—and fear that they won’t understand and remember the facts they’re taught. Amidst new ‘standards’ and relentless testing, a boy repeating 4th grade in the Bronx asks himself, ‘What’s the matter with me? Am I dumb? Will I ever be able to learn?’ The speakers in this vitally important seminar will show how the Aesthetic Realism Teaching Method meets children’s tremendous hope to learn successfully!
New York teachers will give examples of lessons from their own classrooms and will describe how students—including many who had been given up on—become excited by their subjects, remember facts, pass standard exams, and also become much kinder to each other. This is the educational method that can end the high dropout rate, the poor learning, and the violence in our nation’s schools!…more
