HOUSTON: Alternative Education Reading Group Meeting -- NOV 11

The Real School AKA Dragon Valley invites you to join us for the second meeting of our alternative education reading group. Each month we will have a different short reading, available online or by email, to review beforehand and then a meeting to discuss our thoughts and opinions on alternative educational theory and how it relates to our lives.

The second meeting will be on Sunday, November 11th at 3 PM at The Real School AKA Dragon Valley, located at 5020 Dickson, Houston, Texas 77007 (near Shepherd and Memorial). We will be discussing Chapter 9 (Bribes for Behaving: Why Behaviorism Doesn't Help Children Become Good People) from Alfie Kohn's Punished by Rewards. If you have a Houston Public Library card you can read it online as an e-book or check it out from several locations. This is also a book that is available in many bookstores. If you would like a copy to print out please email us.

Young people of all ages are welcome at all of our events; they are the reason for our events! But we do not provide childcare. Our underlying philosophy strives to include not segregate kids. We accept the need of many younger people to move around, to come and go from conversation and to act... like kids. Some older folks have similar needs. As a matter of information, jumping up and down often correlates with happiness.
