Imagination & Childhood
with Nancy Tarshis
Thursday, May 14, 2020
4 p.m. – 5:15 p.m.
What are the limits of imagination? Why do we care about unleashing it in the elementary classroom? After exploring how the imagination drives, binds, and challenges, we’ll hit the pause button, turn away from our screens, and to step into our own imaginations. (For K-2 teachers and K-4 special education teachers.)
