Miss Challinger Presents Professional Learning to South Metro Teachers
At the recent South Metro Schools Professional Learning Day at Murdoch University, CVC Circus Teacher Miss Challinger presented to a number of Arts Teachers from across the South Metro region.
The presentation 'Transforming the Classroom' outlined the ways in which Miss Challinger structures her classes to be student centred and authentic with a focus on what is referred to as ‘soft skills.’ These include cooperation, empathy, collaboration, and problem solving. Miss Challinger breaks these down in to learnable chunks starting in Year 7 and developing student abilities in these areas as they progress through high school.
The presentation was well received by those in attendance, with many of those present taking time to talk further to Miss Challinger at the end of the session.
