Expression in Many Forms
Thinking about forms of expression in different age groupings means a different kind of listening. How do we construct environments and interactions that support the many forms of expression? What are authentic ways to build connections through reciprocal communication?
Join us for a deeper discussion on ways of conversing that allow children’s ideas to unfold, where we learn to “listen” in a more reflective, deeper kind of way that gives children value and respect for their ideas.
Developing spaces for children to collaborate together is balanced with developing independence and caring for others. We will discuss how this can happen, some prompts that may be useful for you to develop and we will finish up with an introduction to “the hundred languages” in order to think more about expression and how we can expand this pedagogy into our programs.
