How can we convey to every child that they can have a dream for themselves, their community, and their world?
This year, many local schools have incorporated the concept of hopes and dreams into their school curriculum.  As a part of this initiative, every child is asked to articulate a dream for themselves.  In this theme-based workshop, we will work in teams to explore how we can connect object-based learning in the galleries to this theme of "dream-making."  
 
This session is open to all educators that wish to collaborate with other educators on lessons, teaching strategies, etc. This is a great time to practice lessons, gain feedback, and invigorate our teaching. These meetings are informal and are guided by the group. Contact Hours: 2
