Cultivating A Sense of Wonder

Mary Clifford June 28, 2015

Presented at:
SCL Conference 2015


What does it mean to have a sense of wonder and why is it so essential for our students? We will explore these questions as well as the challenges we face as educators in cultivating the quality of wonder in our classrooms, from kindergarten through high school. Please bring your own ideas and experiences as we discuss practical ways to cultivate and promote a sense of wonder in our students.
