What does it mean to be an author? What is the purpose of writing a book?  Where do stories come from? In this workshop, we'll delve into the role of stories in the early childhood classroom, exploring children’s play as the center of their powerful authorship. The presenters will discuss their new book, looking at the process of building rich language arts curricula out of children’s play. Following the experiences of one preschool class, we'll look deeply at young children’s understandings of themselves as authors, and how this work might be integrated across the curriculum.

Presenters: Mariana Souto-Manning, Teachers College, Columbia University and Dana Bentley, Lesley University and Buckingham Browne & Nichols School

Free and open to the public.
