Beauty in Broken Places - The Healing Arts of Lily Yeh. Lily Yeh. The Walking Institute - Deveron Arts. Summer School (15 - 19 yrs) Life. It’s a big old thing isn’t it? Seemingly stretching out in front of us for ages with a whole load of possibilities but nothing that’s really certain. Exciting? Obviously! Scary? Honestly, yes, sometimes; but that’s alright! Come and join us at The School of Life for a week of self-discovery where- through our programme of activity and discussion- you can begin to pin down some of those possibilities and make sense of turning them into realities, whilst meeting new people and doing something a bit different and definitely extremely cool over the summer holidays.

Imagine a pick and mix: a week full of all the tastiest bite-sized bits of learning we have here at The School of Life. Life will still feel big and exciting and scary after a week with us but we hope to help you feel a bit more comfortable with your world, what’s going on in it and how you can take control of your future. How To Stay Sane: The Art of Revising Your Inner Storytelling. “I pray to Jesus to preserve my sanity,” Jack Kerouac professed in discussing his writing routine.

But those of us who fall on the more secular end of the spectrum might need a slightly more potent sanity-preservation tool than prayer. That’s precisely what writer and psychotherapist Philippa Perry offers in How To Stay Sane (public library), part of The School of Life’s wonderful series reclaiming the traditional self-help genre as intelligent, non-self-helpy, yet immensely helpful guides to modern living. At the heart of Perry’s argument — in line with neurologist Oliver Sacks’s recent meditation on memory and how “narrative truth,” rather than “historical truth,” shapes our impression of the world — is the recognition that stories make us human and learning to reframe our interpretations of reality is key to our experience of life: Our stories give shape to our inchoate, disparate, fleeting impressions of everyday life. Perry concludes: Artwork by pennylrichardsca.

Art as Therapy: Alain de Botton on the 7 Psychological Functions of Art. By Maria Popova “Art holds out the promise of inner wholeness.” The question of what art is has occupied humanity since the dawn of recorded history. For Tolstoy, the purpose of art was to provide a bridge of empathy between us and others, and for Anaïs Nin, a way to exorcise our emotional excess. But the highest achievement of art might be something that reconciles the two: a channel of empathy into our own psychology that lets us both exorcise and better understand our emotions — in other words, a form of therapy. In Art as Therapy (public library), philosopher Alain de Botton — who has previously examined such diverse and provocative subjects as why work doesn’t work, what education and the arts can learn from religion, and how to think more about sex — teams up with art historian John Armstrong to examine art’s most intimate purpose: its ability to mediate our psychological shortcomings and assuage our anxieties about imperfection.

But these worries, they argue, are misguided. M.E.L.E.C.A. | Música Espetáculo Literatura Ensino Cinema Artesanato. Design, Art, and Technology Makerspace.

The Primary Years Programme: preparing students to be active participants in a lifelong journey of learning.

What is the Primary Years Programme? The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) is a curriculum framework designed for students aged 3 to 12. It focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. It is defined by six transdisciplinary themes of global significance, explored using knowledge and skills derived from six subject areas, with a powerful emphasis on inquiry-based learning. The PYP is flexible enough to accommodate the demands of most national or local curriculums and provides the best preparation for students to engage in the IB Middle Years Programme.

The IB Primary Years Programme An aim of the PYP is to create a transdisciplinary curriculum that is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant for learners in the 3-12 age range. Find out more about the PYP’s written, taught, and assessed curriculum. Our Mission - Young Playwrights' Theater.

Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre. What is Integral ? What is Integral ? When something is integral it is essential to the whole. It is essential for a sense of completeness.

The process of integration occurs when things which were initially separate in some way join together to form a bigger, more cohesive entity. Integration involves the relationship between parts and wholes. Holons As the philosopher Arthur Koestler points out, everything in the entire universe, including the universe itself, is simultaneously both a whole unto itself and a part of something bigger. Affects whether we see something at any given moment as a whole unto itself or a part of something bigger has to do with the context in which we are experiencing it. Atoms are wholes unto themselves while simultaneously being parts of molecules, which are wholes unto themselves while simultaneously being parts of cells which are parts of living tissue and organs and complex organisms such as human beings.

Everything is made up of these holons. The bark of a tree. Integral Art. Educacaointegral.org.br/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/CENPEC_PercursosEducIntegral-1.pdf. Trans Europe Halles l About us.

Orchestre à l'école. Jean-Claude Decalonne. In classroom orchestras, children choose their own instrument on their first day of school and learn from local music school teachers every week, fostering curiosity and respect. Teachers and school administrators become project leaders, responsible not only for the quality of kids’ educational experience, but also for the mobilization of other stakeholders, including music schools and municipalities.

Aware of the administrative maze people often have to overcome, Jean-Claude is devoting a three-person team to support teachers’ daily efforts through online and offline assistance. Jean-Claude also recognizes the importance of engaging parents who are traditionally uninvolved in school activities or only hear from teachers in response to behavioral and academic problems. To overcome parents’ reluctance to the launch of orchestras, Jean-Claude ensures that local orchestras perform in four public concerts every year, building parents’ confidence and pride in their children’s skills.

After School Time Programs – After School Time Learning Problems and Solutions - The Wallace Foundation. ​After School Strategy Chart The Problem More than 15 million school-age children are left to their own devices after 3 p.m., yet millions of parents report they would enroll their kids in after-school and summer programs if only they were available. This is an enormous missed opportunity for learning and enrichment during “out-of-school time” (OST), especially for children most in need. How We Are Tackling It Typically OST programming is fragmented, with the many varied after school programs and government agencies and private groups that finance them operating in isolation from one another.

Our after school strategy is three-pronged: Inform city decision-makers nationwide about the value of OST systems and how to build them.Develop web materials to help city leaders act on what we’ve learned.Help cities already building OST systems to put in place essential pieces, including computer systems to provide reliable citywide data on program participation and quality.
