The Martin Institute Master Class with John Hunter is an unparalleled experience for teachers to come together in an environment insulated from the demanding rhythms and routines of the day in order to interrogate their own teaching practices.

Classes are meant for teachers of all grade levels and subject areas.

The Martin Institute Master Class with John Hunter is offered in two different formats:

A: Two-Day Master Class

Using John Hunter’s World Peace Game as an inspiring and challenging analogy, class participants are led by John Hunter and Jamie Baker of the Martin Institute through a series of reflective questions and activities that uncover the grounding assumptions of their teaching practice. This process renders new space and possibilities for different approaches in their teaching method and their learning design. Using new insights, class participants take the outcomes evident in John Hunter’s work and design toward them using their own age group students and subject area and interests.

Working Ideas:

  • Renewal, Reflection, Reinvention
  • Strengths, Fears and Possibilities
  • Moving from Control to Structure
  • Being the Teachers Our Students Need
  • Teacher as Designer
  • Open Space Curriculum Design

Cost:

$1,250 per attendee.
Groups of 4 or more are eligible for a discount.

Schedule:

8:30am to 4:00pm, lunch included in cost.

B: Five-Day Master Class for Teachers and World Peace Game Camp for Students

The 5 day Master Classes contain all of the material for the Two Day Master Classes with John Hunter but also include the opportunity for teachers to observe John Hunter playing the World Peace Game with students.

Students will begin the game after brief introductory sessions on Monday morning and end the week reflecting on their learning experience. Afternoon sessions will be devoted to learning specifics about the World Peace Game at the beginning of the week and then moving on to class participants designing learning that is inspired by the principals and spirit of the game.
