The television show Sesame Street has touched the lives of countless children for decades here in the United States and around the world. Many of those children grew up to have children who watch Sesame Workshop programming today. GEEARS: Georgia Early Education Alliance for Ready Students is excited to present this virtual event where parents and caregivers can learn once again with those at Sesame, and in turn learn more with our children.
You are invited to a conversation with Dr. Rosemarie Truglio, as she speaks with GEEARS Board Chair Stephanie Blank and you about her latest book on parenting, her work at Sesame Workshop, and how it all ties in raising children here in Georgia.
Dr. Truglio is the Senior Vice President of Curriculum and Content at Sesame Workshop. Dr. Truglio is responsible for the development of the interdisciplinary curriculum on which Sesame Street is based and oversees content development across platforms, including Esme & Roy, now airing on HBO.
Numerous articles have been published by Dr. Truglio in child and developmental psychology journals and she has presented her work at national and international conferences. Her current book is Ready for School! A Parent’s Guide to Playful Learning for Children Ages 2 to 5 published by Running Press (2019).
Dr. Truglio will share with us her experiences from her work socializing and educating children through media, and share new ideas from her book that parents can use to become even better educators for their children. We will also connect these handy ideas to resources and groups already here in our State, so parents can get support in taking action.
Join us for this free virtual event, September 15th, from 2:00 – 3:00 pm EDT, to talk with Dr. Rosemarie Truglio about how Georgia can better learn, grow, and play with our kids!
