Working with Starseed Children—Part I
DESCRIPTION: This series of workshops will address one of the challenges facing instructors today, which is motivating the different array and diversity of students in the classroom while trying to meet the requirements of state guidelines.

Not only are there students from many different cultural and religious backgrounds, but there is also an increasing number of students in that mixture who are older souls and require a completely different approach to their educational programs. Some people use the term “indigo”.

These workshops will use the term "starseed" (coming from The Cosmic Family volumes)—a more educationally-advanced and universally-accurate name for these children—and will be presented by educators who have been working with starseed children and studying the starseed phenomenon for more than twenty years.

The presenters will be sharing their insights and experiences, helping participants understand different ways to help starseed make full use of their talents and potential in the process of unfolding their destinies.

Part 1 consists of 2 topics:
1) An Introduction: Starseed in Our Midst—A Case for Multi-Age Classrooms
2) Raising and Educating Children in an EcoVillage

FEE: $35 per Session; $90 for participants who come to all three sessions of the series.
