Practical Life: The Roots of Character and Culture

9 a.m. to 4 p.m.*, Friday, November 10
129 Regional Development Institute, UWRF Campus
Registration Fee: $69 early registration; $79 after October 11

Have you ever wondered why Montessori children do things like cutting pickles, washing tables, using a wrench and screwdriver, walking on a line, and making bubbles as part of their curriculum? Moreover, what do these things have to do with character development and culture?  Join Crystal Dahlmeier as we explore the vital importance of these and other practical life activities in a child’s development from early childhood through adolescence. 

This interactive workshop will provide teachers and parents with both theoretical and practical aspects that one can incorporate into activities at home or in the classroom.  

Crystal Dahlmeier, an educator from Cincinnati, Ohio, is experienced in traditional, Montessori, multi-age and special education.  She has done extensive work with children, parents and teachers in conferences and workshops, domestically and internationally.
