Volume 3

Introduction to this volume

Volume 3, School Education, focuses on the education of school-age children. While this generally refers to those twelve and under, School Education is a treasure of important ideas for the development, application, and assessment of our curricula. As such, it is indispensable for every Mason educator. Parents and teachers reflect continually on the student’s relationships, the roles of current research and culture, and the practices that bring it all together. As a Blue Orchard Bee study group, we will consider Mason’s advice in light of the needs and perspectives of neuroatypical students. Join our neurodiverse group of Mason educators for discussion and support as we start Part 3 of this study  in July. Jump in and learn with us!
