Developing Capacities for Imaginative Learning

Abigail McNamee and Cecilia Espinosa: Early Childhood/Childhood Education

 Imagination is the crux of learning in that it enhances cognitive as well as social and emotional growth in teachers, teacher candidates, all children...everyone really. Lincoln Center Education has developed ten Capacities for Imaginative Learning. This workshop will introduce these Capacities and will focus on the first Capacity, Noticing Deeply, through learning experiences with a picture book, Frederick, by Leo Lionni. This book and others featured in the Innovation Series are from the LCI Collection recently acquired by the Leonard Lief Library.
