Student Assistant Teaching: Completing the Circle

Who:
Alexa Dunn, Joshua Block and SLA Student Assistant Teachers
When:
Session One
Where:
Room 300

The Student Assistant Teaching program at SLA places Senior students in underclassmen classrooms and completes the high school circle experience of teaching and learning. It enriches teacher/student and student/student relationships, builds a multi-leveled community of reflective learners, and reinforces an ethic of care in the classroom and beyond. Please join us for an evocative and stimulating panel discussion with teachers Alexa Dunn and Joshua Block, plus members of the Student Assistant Teaching program as we explore the roots of this program and its success at SLA.
