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.
What is Clubhouse Democracy ? What is a Transitional Model? We discuss.
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 discuss the details of democratic meetings and how they must, crucially, be connected ro freedom.
We summarise Optional Lessons and emphasise that they are not offered in isolation, or randomly, but with a number of surrounding factors that are needed for success.
We discuss Optional Lessons. What Contexts and Scaffolding create successful Optional lessons in a Democratic free School?
We discuss the Age Ranges in our school. Is there an essential Age Range? A Lynch pin?
Designing a Democratic Free School needs a solid vision, mission statement. We discuss the principles that we think are essential for our school..
