Join us for the TRCCS Parent Education Series on Wednesday March 19th, 6pm at CWES. The focus of this evening will be the TRCCS curriculum (inspired by Waldorf) and its alignment to the common core standards. This event is for parents of currently enrolled students, parents looking into enrolling their child and community members who want to learn more about the TRCCS educational pedagogy and how students are learning at TRCCS.The students at TRCCS receive all of the core academics that students in the traditional setting learn; it is the approach to that learning that is fundamentally different. The presentation will be led by Mary Barr Goral PH.D.; Educational Director at Green Meadows Charter School Initiative and Kentahten Teacher Training. She began her career in education more than thirty years ago. After teaching in the public schools in Bloomington, Illinois, for eleven years, she received both her master's and doctorate in curriculum studies and math education from Indiana University. Dr. Goral’s book: “Transformational Possibilities of Schooling: A Study of Waldorf Education,” is a qualitative research report conducted at the Rudolf Steiner School in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Dr. Goral is the author of the TRCCS curriculum and has focused her carrier on bringing Waldorf Curriculum into the public sector.
Dr. Goral will also be leading attendees in some form drawing. This will give participants an idea of what the children are learning and the use of the Waldorf Block Crayons.
Please join us; coffee, tea and child care provided. The event is free and open to the public.
