Thursday we begin to delve more deeply into literacy and the Reggio elementary schools. The primary teachers prepared some rich documentation for the representation showcasing their literacy work with the children. Inherent in their image of the child is a strong belief in their capacity to be learn era, to be curious and creative. Have we forgotten this in our schools? Their documentation highlighted children’s ability to grapple with codes and why we need to have agreement so we can read each others writing and communicate to a wider audience.
Over wonderful food we have been planning how to document our experience and share it with the ESU community. We are also dreaming…the primary school was the most amazing learning environment I have ever seen! More to come on this. Tomorrow we begin at the market where the lions sit.
