"Beyond the Box"
November 18, 2020 – 7-8 p.m.
Hear from Park School faculty members who launched the Beyond the Box project this summer. Using research supported by a curricular grant, their work aims at engendering the most inclusive learning environment, in which all students feel heard, known, and deeply valued. Focused on how all students can thrive, Park teachers continually strive to make space for students to embrace the full range of how they identify, as opposed to feeling compelled to fit into specific boxes.
