2.6 Curriculum Night: Upstanders and Agents of Change

Thursday, February 6, 2020
6:30 pm

Please RSVP so we can prepare materials and sessions appropriately for the number of attendees expected at this event.

This year we’re hosting a very important curriculum event that is dedicated to highlighting our (new) 10th tenet–the belief that children can be upstanders and agents of change–and how this Progressive educational philosophy comes to life in our classrooms. 

10th Tenet

We believe that children can be upstanders and agents of change.  Fostering respect for differences and developing the skills to challenge racism, hate, and bigotry helps children to make positive contributions in the world.

Program Details

Join us for an evening in the classrooms with our teachers, who will showcase our antibias work that’s designed for just the right age and developmental stage of children by grade level.

The program will start with an introduction at 6:30 pm. Then in small groups, classroom teachers and specialists will lead you through a series of explanations and activities that demonstrate how antibias work is rooted in Miquon’s social studies curriculum.

During the program, you can expect:

  • An overview of the tenet and why it is important
  • Connections to our social studies curriculum, which draws on the themes and standards set forth by the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS)
  • To learn about an interactive project or study that embodies the 10th tenet
  • To learn about a classroom routine that helps children practice upstander skills

It promises to be a fun, interactive night! We hope you can join us!
