For many, paradoxes can be overwhelming and lead to inaction. The tension between “either-or” choices, can prove to be too much.
When educating children, we feel the tension daily. The tension to either allow development and learning to unfold through play and supportive relationships, or to push and try to speed things up to ensure children are “ready” for Kindergarten.
In this free video series I offer solutions to three pre-k paradoxes, which include:
- Teaching common outcomes while personalizing instruction
- Setting high expectations and low demands
- Helping children self-regulate, while limiting efforts to manage their behaviors
You will receive a link to a webpage which contains more information on the solutions, and links to three videos.
A common theme that runs between the solutions is the need to firmly embrace the tensions of “both-and” versus seeing things as “either-or.”
