MILTON Hosts Community Day of Learning for Local Educators

May 22, 2018 by Melissa Davis (Faculty and Staff)

MILTON’s early childhood academic team hosted another Community Day of Learning for educators in the Washington area last week. Thirteen educators from four area schools, including Washington Yu Ying Public Charter School in DC, Beauvoir in DC, Shaare Torah in Gaithersburg, and Ohr Chadash in Baltimore, participated in a day of professional development focusing on “Project Work: A Multi-Disciplinary Approach to Teaching and Learning in Early Childhood.”

The program included a presentation by our Pre-K and Kindergarten General Studies teachers about the construction and implementation of multi-disciplinary projects – the Kindergarten Social Insect Project and the Pre-K “Identity through the Lens of Our Feelings” Project. Participants also had the opportunity to take a self-guided tour of the South Campus classrooms, participate in a practical application of the multiple-draft process, and engage in a Q&A panel with five of our educators. It was a wonderful opportunity to continue to build partnerships with area schools and learn with and from each other!
