Friday, March 6, 2015 - 10:00am - 12:00pm

Over the past 14 years, a special approach to play has emerged in the county district of Anji in China.  Directed and supported by Ms. Cheng (Angela) Xueqin, the regional director of early childhood education for the county district of Anji, teachers and school leaders in the 127 early childhood centers of Anji have been developing a materials-based play curriculum uniquely designed for the rapidly changing Chinese context within their mostly rural county. Working almost entirely outside the influence of western visions of curriculum, Ms. Cheng and her team have created a powerful approach that they have just begun to share with western colleagues.

Come and hear about this extraordinary approach to early childhood education.  On Friday, March 6 from 10 am -12 pm at the Annenberg Center, 3620 Walnut Street, room 111,  Ms. Cheng will do a presentation of the schools of Anji. The event is free and open to the public. For further information, contact Dr. Frances Rust franrust@gse.upenn.edu.
