Early Years Job-Alike at AAS Sofia

CEESA and AAS Sofia are very happy to announce that the Early Years Job-Alike will be held At AAS Sofia on November 15-17, 2019.

Are you wondering if you are on the right track with your practice? Do you sometimes feel that you need some fresh infusion to what you do in your classroom? Don't you sometimes want to get a sneak peek into other Early Years teacher's classroom and exchange thoughts, concerns, desires? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then this event is for you!

During this JAL we aim to open space for sharing, collaboration and exploring new perspectives.

  • How to meet the expectations and the standards and still put the child in the center?
  • How can play exist in the classroom and be a tool for learning?
  • How can the inquiry-based approach replace the worksheets?
  • How can we create learning spaces that play the role of a third teacher?
  • How should we construct our planning more effectively?
  • What is the role of documentation?

We hope to find the answers to these questions and ask others that might evolve. The event will be progressive rather than strictly predetermined.

To help us in this journey we have invited Mr. Greg Bottrill from the UK. He is a very passionate and enthusiastic Early Years teacher, author and presenter. He travels across the globe to work with teachers to promote and protect the children's right to play and be empowered protagonists of their learning journeys!

It will be in great benefit for all the participants to read his book Can I Go and Play Now prior to the JAL.
