Educators Writing in Community

Have you developed a curriculum or a teaching practice that you'd like to share with colleagues or a larger educational audience? Do you have experience building student-centered democratic school communities and want to share your knowledge with other school leaders? Do you want to develop writing as a reflective tool to strengthen your practice? In spring 2020, Bank Street College will pilot a reflective writing group designed for educators. This online group will help educators use writing to reflect upon, hone, and share their practice alongside supportive Bank Street faculty, alumni, and friends of the college. *This synchronous workshop meets online Eastern Time
