Posted on 5/27/2014 4:06:22 PM

Beatrice Fennimore, Department of Professional Studies in Education, will present “Helping Teachers to Connect the Dots Between Ethics, Advocacy, Diversity, and Social Justice: Moving from Abstract Ideas to Enacted Intentions and Powerful Practices in the Early Childhood Classroom” at the National Association for the Education of Young Children Professional Development Institute on June 8, 2014.

This presentation is based on her recent book, published by Teachers College Press, titled Standing Up for Something Every Day: Ethics and Justice in Early Childhood Classrooms.

The institute takes place in Minneapolis, Minn., along with the concurrent meeting of the National Association of Early Childhood Teacher Educators. Fennimore will present at this meeting on June 9, focusing on linking concepts of social justice to the National Association for the Education of Young Children Code of Ethics and Statement of Commitment.

She is also an invited author at the Minnesota Association for the Education of Young Children “Authors Dinner,” to take place during the concurrent meetings. Attendees at the dinner purchase tickets to have dinner at the table of the author of their choice and to receive a copy of that author’s recent book.
