Program Description

“We can never think of the child in the abstract. When we think about a child, when we pull out a child to look at, that child is already tightly connected and linked to a certain reality of the world — she has relationships and experiences. We cannot separate this child from a particular reality. She brings these experiences, feelings, and relationships into school with her.” Loris Malaguzzi, Your Image of the Child: Where Teaching Begins

How might school be a place for each child to develop their sense of civic participation and belonging?  Holding a strong image of the child invites us to keep our classroom walls permeable: to seek connections between the feelings and experiences children are having with each other, their personal identities, and the larger world that we recognize they have a right to know about.  This session explores practices in working with primary grades children that keep those potentially disparate and untended lives an integrated whole.

Participants are encouraged to view the short film Becoming Who I Am before this session.
