Parent Ed: Book Club with the Headmaster

October 18 | 8:15 a.m. | Solarium

Pick up a copy of Lifelong Kindergarten by Mitchel Resnick and join Headmaster, Dr. Mark Carleton, as he explores the book's topics in depth.

In most Kindergarten classes children spend more time with math worksheets and phonics flashcards than building blocks and finger paint. Kindergarten is becoming more like the rest of school. In Lifelong Kindergarten, learning expert Mitchel Resnick argues for exactly the opposite: the rest of school (even the rest of life) should be more like kindergarten. To thrive in today's fast-changing world, people of all ages must learn to think and act creatively—and the best way to do that is by focusing more on imagining, creating, playing, sharing, and reflecting, just as children do in traditional kindergartens.

Parents are encouraged to read this book in advance and bring their questions and comments.
