2 thoughts on “The Move: Reggio Emilia-inspired Teaching

  1. This was a wonderful read. My first lecture about Reggio Emilia confirmed everything I knew that was right for young children. Validation is a great launching pad. That lecture focused on ‘the city’. Since then, all my teaching is child centered. My classroom is the one with spontaneity and eager children. The learning is remarkable. I think it is scary for many teachers to let the children guide the curriculum. They need good mentors for a year or two. My favorite line from the article: ‘children were only being seen through the narrow lens of curriculum expectations’. Many thanks for sharing!
