Join us for one or both of the following. Registration is required for each individually. Both trainings will be held at Think Small | 2021 E. Hennepin Ave., LL20 | Minneapolis, MN 55413. Lunch will not be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own if you attend both sessions.


Friday, November 8
10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Trainer: Ed Steinhauer, Keystone Community Services

Teachers help students to acquire knowledge and skills. Teaching discrete skills, such as the attributes of polygons and geometric solids, fractional measurements, creative writing, and elements of fiction, can be ends in and of themselves, or they can be combined in a purposeful way. To a child, what could be more purposeful than to combine all of those disciplines into making toys that they can play with? This unit of study is designed to do just that.

Research shows that a positive environment predicts stronger academic skills and perceptions of academic abilities. What message does your environment send to children, families and staff? Examine the elements of a good program, review basic principles of design through a variety of lenses, and reflect on easy, creative approaches to increase the impact of your environment on everyone.
