Programs in the New Cosmology
Professional Development for Teachers
Ms. Morgan gives three-hour and six-hour teacher trainings in how to teach the cosmic story through storytelling, discussions, movement and other activites. Programs for Montessori teachers cover the Montessori Cosmic Education Curriculum, the Great Lessons, and storytelling.
School visits, tailored specifically for your school, can include programs for students, teachers and parents. Programs for students include discussions about writing and publishing books, the story of the universe (science concepts and dramatic storytelling in the electrifying robe with sound effects). For a list of schools Ms. Morgan has already visited, see "Bio".
