Washington International School Hosts Children Are Citizens Conference

Location: 1690 36th Street NW, Washington DC 20007

October 5, 2018 – October 6, 2018
9:00 am to 4:30 pm

At this two-day conference, you will learn about the exciting Children Are Citizens initiative in Washington, DC, and other cities. You will see how the project has come to life in diverse classrooms, experience methods through which the arts, humanities, and sciences have been integrated into the curriculum, and have the opportunity to plan for starting something similar in your own setting.

CAClogoProject Zero’s Mara Krechevsky and Ben Mardell, who originated this initiative and who have collaborated with educators in Reggio Emilia preschools for nearly two decades, will be keynote speakers over the two days.

The conference has been designed for educators in the early childhood to early elementary range.

Goals for the conference are to:

  1. Introduce and explore key principles of the Reggio-inspired Children Are Citizens project;
  2. Assist attendees in adapting Children Are Citizens to their own setting by building an action plan; and
  3. Build a network of early childhood-early elementary educators who can support one another beyond the conference in doing this important work.
