World Cafe in Elementary Schools!

This from Jean Kluver of the Explorer Elementary Charter School in San Diego:

“I thought you might be interested to see how we use World Café at our school with children from K through 5th grade.  We learned it originally from Nanci Cole, a master teacher from the California Association for the Gifted (we don’t use that term, or separate our children – we like their strategies but think they are for all children) but she never told us where it came from. Now I have found your website and shared it with all of our teachers. Now that we know who you are we will credit you and link to your site.

Have a look at our website and you can see how we use it”I have another example of how it is used in first grade.

We are part of a network of nine charter schools and a graduate school of education, so I am spreading the word of your resources.

Thanks, Jean!


  1. Amy,
