What Works! In Rhode Island Using the Whole Child Education Approach in Education!
Learning First Alliance/Rhode Island is offering "What Works! A Series of Professional Development Workshops Using The Whole Child Approach to Education". Each workshop will use best practices and will incorporate one of the five Whole Child tenets: Healthy, Safe, Supported, Engaged and Challenged.
The workshops will run from 3:30pm to 5:00pm, February to May 2016. You may register for one or any number of workshops. There is no fee for this series, however, we will be providing light refreshments and would like to know how many will be attending each workshop. Please register at least one month before each scheduled workshop. As you will see, the workshop locations are spread throughout the State of Rhode Island.
