Event description

Description

The Foxfire Approach

The Foxfire Approach is not a “method.” It is not a template nor is it a recipe for classroom success. Each practitioner adapts the approach to his/her own subject areas, student constituencies, and curricular requirements. The Foxfire Core Practices, developed over time by distilling the practices of highly successful teachers, provide both a starting point for instruction and a life-long set of referents for improvement. Deep engagement in John Dewey’s Experience & Education, 60th Anniversary Edition, helps participants develop a better understanding of the pedagogical principles embedded within the Foxfire Approach.

Accomodations

Choose from one of the week-long courses - 06/04 - 06/10 OR 06/11 - 06/17. The course will meet at the Foxfire Museum and Hertiage Center in Rabun County, Georgia. Accommodations at the museum are rustic, but comfortable. Breakfast fare and lunch are provided as part of the fee. Evening meals are on your own. Spending downtime with teachers from different disciplines, grade levels, and experiences tends to stimulate participants to look at their own situations in a new light. Plus, being at the Foxfire Center on the side of Black Rock Mountain is like having a vacation to accompany the learning experience.
