In an effort to make a meaningful contribution to the professional education community at large and to extend our leadership, we were selected by LAUSD to participate as a host school for the Annual Magnet Schools of America Conference current taking place in Los Angeles. This conference hosts approximately 2,000 participants from across the nation and a bus load of 50 educators descended upon Open School today to see constructivism in action.
This one-day visit for educators from across the U.S. took place on our campus, offering visiting educators the opportunity to experience and observe learning and teaching processes in an authentic context. It provided a chance for participants to observe constructivist practices and focused classroom demonstrations, as well as see student performances, visit the garden and ask questions of panelists including teachers, students, and staff.
We thank LAUSD for this national recognition and we look forward to many opportunities to come.
