Speaking With Children so They Can Think
In a very real sense, the language we use creates reality. Tom speaks about the specific words we use, and how and when we use them, shape reality for our students for both good and bad.
Tom 'Teacher Tom' Hobson is a preschool teacher, writer, speaker, artist, and author. He is best known for his blog 'Teacher Tom's Blog,' where he has posted daily for nearly a decade.
Join Tom and a range of other speakers (bit.ly/httc2020) who will stimulate your thinking and inspire new action in your Learning Through Play journey.
