Facilitated by Hilltop Children's Center Educators Sarah Felstiner, Heather Cope, and Michelle Sanders.|
Educators in Reggio Emilia, Italy have described the school as a "three-legged stool" made up of children, families, and teachers...if any of those pieces is missing, the whole thing falls down!
This workshop will explore the role of families in Reggio-inspired programs, and consider how we can encourage families to become meaningfully engaged in our programs. Using stories from Hilltop Children's Center, we'll describe models for partnering with families in curriculum planning, documentation, and assessment.
Hilltop's unique practice of "Collaborative Conferences" brings small groups of families together, to study and comment on their children's emergent In-Depth Investigations. This practice offers families an active and authentic role in their children's work, and helps generate deep engagement with the curriculum.
