Full Course Name
Constructing a Democratic Clsrm: Focus On Routines, Rules and Transitions (ages 3 - 10)
Routines, rules, and transitions may be thought of as providing the framework for the daily life of the classroom. The way in which they are constructed and carried out strongly affects the social, moral, and academic atmosphere in the setting. What does democracy mean in relation to routines, rules, and transitions? How can children have a voice in determining them?
The ultimate goal is not simply to create order but also to encourage the development of both autonomy and a caring community. Topics to be considered are views of the nature of the child, developmental appropriateness, flexibility, the meaning of resistance, and how routines and transitions relate to academic learning and the various curriculum areas, particularly social studies.
Teachers will examine and analyze the structures in their own and each others' classrooms.
Ages 3 - 9 Years
