Learning stories are beneficial to children as well as families and caretakers. Story-telling is a natural form of communication that engages families, and draws them into the conversation about their child.
By sharing stories with families that contain links to frameworks and interpretation of learning, learning stories allow teachers to include children and parents in the learning process. This is especially powerful when the sharing is in real-time via a digital platform. Parents can provide informed feedback on the learning analysis and/or the next steps in a collaborative way.
This 60 minute webinar, by Educa’s Rachel Silva, explores the concept of authentic collaboration, parents as partners using learning stories as the path to a stronger parent-teacher partnership.
Rachel joined Educa in 2018, with over 20 years of experience working with Educators in Pre k – 8 classrooms throughout the United States as a literacy consultant, special education advocate, and director of development. Rachel believes that “stories stick” and that through storytelling we find opportunities for growth and strengthening of relationships. She loves working with teachers on opportunities for authentic collaboration and inspiring professional development.
Allyson’s years as a teacher and director of curriculum help inform her work at Educa as a teacher advocate and director of professional development. She joined Educa to make an exponential impact in the field of ECE and to spread the word about learning story pedagogy. She loves that learning stories embrace the uniqueness of children and the powerful emotional bond children develop with their teachers.
I have been to management workshops, not leadership training. This has totally changed my perspective and encouraged me to propel forward in developing my skills.
I am honored and humbled to be a recipient of the Region 9 Head Start Association’s Legacy Scholarship. The scholarship helped me get one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a Head Start Director.
I took part in The disproportionate impact of COVID 19, and how to provide “real” support for black/brown children and families and I just want to say this was an amazing webinar. I hope we can look forward to further conversation on this topic.
Thank you so much for making events like this! I really enjoyed and learned so much teaching strategies to implement STEM in the classroom.
The HR Network was an excellent opportunity to network and learn the best practices from other HR professionals within Head Start programs. You will be amazed by the level of talent and experience of the participants.
The Summer Camp training was powerful and inspiring! Each presenter was very engaging, it’s hard to even pick a favorite session!
The Leadership Challenge training was very relevant to my work as a Head Start leader! Great facilitation; stayed with the program yet allowed time for individual and small group reflections.
