Science Education in Preschool: How to Assimilate the Reggio Emilia Pedagogy in a Turkish Preschool
Inan, Hatice Zeynep
Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, v10 n2 Article 14 Dec 2009
This commentary manuscript, which was part of a larger research project, aimed to show how teachers can help preschoolers construct their knowledge of science and meet preschool science standards successfully in a Reggio Emilia approach. The demonstrations for preschool teachers are summarized as follows: be inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach; aim higher; take individual needs into consideration; listen to the child; pay attention to shared interests of children; do documentation; balance peer culture and school culture; take action; support "hands-on, heads-on, hearts-on" experiences; be flexible; and properly benefit from the Turkish National Education standards.
