ECH 501 - The Reggio Emilia Approach and the Emergent Curriculum

This course introduces students to the Reggio Emilia approach and the use of the emergent curriculum in early childhood education. The course begins with an overview of the history and development of the Reggio Emilia approach and moves to the pedagogical dimensions and features of the emergent curriculum as practiced in this curriculum model. The methodology of project work is extensively explored over the course. Students are expected to construct an understanding of how to develop an emergent curriculum based upon children’s interests and needs. The concept of pedagogical documentation is debased and used to support curriculum planning and children’s assessment.
