This 1-week workshop is designed to introduce attendees to the foundational principles of the Reggio Emilia approach for children in grades PreK-5th. Using these basic tenets, attendees will develop a theory of how the Reggio principles interface with teaching and learning within an American context, with an emphasis on reexamining the roles of the teacher and the learner. Additionally, this workshop provides strategies for supporting children’s learning through inquiry. Participants in this workshop will learn to reflect upon their function in providing provocations for exploration, as well as strategies for designing an environment whose purpose it is to facilitate relationship building between children and their peers, ideas, and the world around them.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Goal 1: Describe the scope and sequence of the emergence of the Reggio Emilia approach in early care and education.
- Goal 2: Interpret the role of the teacher not as a transmitter of knowledge, but as a creator of relationships, not only between people, but also between things, between thoughts, and with the environment.
- Goal 3: Reflect on and articulate current perspectives on teaching as viewed through the lens of characteristics of Reggio Emilia that address the learner and the environment.
