Reggio Emilia

Using this curriculum with ELL students:The project approach is great for students that are still learning English. Students can use their creativity to express him or herself through a project. Natural learning will unfold as the student has questions and interacts with other students. Using the project approach in the classroom will benefit and be differentiated for all students.(3.2.a. Organize learning around standards-based content and language learning objectives for students from diverse backgrounds and at varying English proficiency levels.)

"The Reggio Emilia philosophy is an approach to teaching, learning and advocacy for children. In its most basic form, it is a way of observing what children know, are curious about and what challenges them. Teachers record these observations to reflect on developmentally appropriate ways to help children expand their academic and social potentials. Long term projects connect core academic areas in and out of the classroom."Grand Rapids Child Discovery Center
