The Hungry Mind: Practical Ways to Foster Curiosity and Encourage our Children’s Eagerness to Learn, Easily and Happily

Thu, Apr 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Susan Engel

Children naturally possess an active interest in the world and learn best when curiosity is stimulated. How can parents and teachers support this critical 21st century skill? In this fascinating discussion, Engel will talk about what makes us curious and the influences that can encourage or stifle intellectual explorations. Participants will learn how to create environments where curiosity is nurtured and rewarded, allowing young people to learn easily and happily. Key strategies will be provided to foster curiosity so all students thrive.

Please join us at 7 p.m. April 27 at Glenbard East High School, 1014 S. Main St. in Lombard. CPDUs are available.

Engel is a highly regarded developmental psychologist and the director of the Program in Teaching at Williams College in Williamstown, MA.
