C&C at Progressive Ed. Conference

Last week, nine representatives of C&C’s Middle/Upper School teaching and administrative staff headed to Chicago to present at and participate in the nation’s leading Progressive Education conference, the theme of which was “The Power of Progressive Practice.” 
Almost 600 educators from around the country attended the conference, and our presentations were very successful–Scott Moran reports overhearing attendees excitedly discussing Jinny, Lauren and Robert’s session. 

Scott Moran (M/US Director) and Ann Roberts (XIIIs Group Teacher) presented on authentic student questions and the research process; Robert Berkman and Jinny Chang (Math Specialists) and Lauren Clark (IXs Group Teacher) presented on the Math and Jobs Program at City and Country; Ian Klapper and Maggie Ens presented on “Fostering Ecological Sensitivity with Art: Building Community and a Mini-Golf Installation on Governors Island, NYC” and Todd Rosenthal (Library) and Nancy Segal (VIIIs Group Teacher) presented on collaborative design with children. City and Country’s prominent role at this event reflects our expertise and leadership in progressive education for children ages 2 – 13.
