In Clubhouse Democracy Week 2 we prepare a discussion about how to introduce children to Clubhouse Democracy and the development of a Clubhose Habitat.
We summarise the first of five weeks investigating Clubhouse Democracy: Transitional Models, Progressive Junk, and the components of Clubhouse creation.
We begin a five week exploration of Clubhouse Democracy. What are Transitional models? What’s Clubhouse Democracy ?
Democratic Free School meeting problems, the basics of good meetings, creating the templates.
We say that democratic schools begin with freedom, not democratic meetings. It’s the freedom that students bring to the meeting that creates a truly Democratic Free School.
We finish off the first of two weeks about Democratic Meetings with some remarks about the podcast.
Democratic Meetings are an important part of democratic schools. This week we are talking about the role of meetings in this school we are designing. What will the function of the meetings be?
We discuss Optional Lessons. What Contexts and Scaffolding create successful Optional lessons in a Democratic free School?
Here we provide a concise description of what we would like to see in a simple Mission/Vision Statement. It is not definitive! We will come back and edit it as we go through this design process.
We discuss the theme of the week: how to get going on a sensible mission statement. We don’t always agree, but we always discuss.
