The Ten Theorem Project - Take Two

In 2018, we are continuing this action research initiative. We have a new list of theorems, “The Ten Theorems Take Two”, and specific questions to take with you on the journey into the classroom. We invite you to bring a problem or theorem to students in at least two different grades, ranging from grade 6 to grade 12. Explore the activity of learning math in your school and attend our fall research colloquium!

Transforming the Classroom to Meet New Needs

As a new generation of teachers taking up the task of teaching, we are met with ever changing needs from our students. By exploring these questions and looking into student observation practices, we hope to receive the insights needed to craft the learning environments and methods that truly meet the developmental needs of our students today.

The Metamorphasis of the Conceptual Experience

In collaboration with the faculty of the Summerfield Waldorf School in Santa Rosa CA, the Center for Contextual Studies will be facilitating a four-day workshop focusing on the metamorphosis of conceptual experience from early childhood through high school.   Under the guidance of Jon McAlice, we will be working towards a better understanding and richer experience of what Rudolf Steiner termed the path from a formative education through an enlivening education to an awakening of conceptual understanding in adolescence.
