How Do I Learn?

A session on different abilities and preferences for learning.

Adam Ford

45 Minute Program

 

$135


In this session, Adam will read his book The Six Sisters and their Flying Carpets (about 15 minutes), then discuss how the six sisters each have their own way of flying and how these preferences relate to abilities in all children. he'll talk with you about how you would make a carpet fly—what techniques you would use and what skills you can bring to making magic happen. Through learning about your own strengths and weaknesses, you can get a sense of what you might be good at doing or what you could use some help with. Seeing how everybody has different talents will lead to seeing the value of other kids around. Participants will have access to a downloadable worksheet that encourages children to write about how they would fly a magic carpet and help identify the areas of knowledge that they're good in.

If you're already familiar with The Six Sisters and their Flying Carpets, we can skip the reading and go more in depth with examining the different abilities of the characters.
