WORKSHOPS and PRESENTATIONS
A seasoned presenter to large audiences, Peter Horn also develops dynamic workshops for smaller groups.
All programs are customized to the needs of the client. Sample topics:
Civil Discourse 101: HOW TO DISCUSS DIFFICULT TOPICS
Whether our goal for kids is better participation in the classroom community or global citizenship, students need to know how to discuss difficult topics respectfully. Some of Peter’s ideas on this topic were translated for use in the 2016 Concours, the national teachers exam of France.
Missing Voices: What Kids Can Teach Us About School
Schools almost universally declare students to be at the center of their mission, but almost as universally fail to ask students what they think about school. What are the reasons for this tradition—and how can we correct it? Peter outlines his research on how students have described some of the best teachers in NJ. Participants are invited to share their own practices and questions about student feedback.
Supporting LGBTQ Students in your school
Over the decade that Peter Horn coordinated a school-based Gay-Straight Alliance, he worked with numerous groups of faculty and students on how best to support LGBTQ students, twice providing workshops to New Jersey’s Law-Related Education Conference.
