The Construction Site Project: Transforming Early Childhood Teacher Practice
McNaughton, Kathryn; Krentz, Caroline
Theory Into Practice, v46 n1 p65-73 2007
The work of Malaguzzi (in Edwards, Gandini, & Forman, 1998; Fraser, 2006) has made the fundamentals of the preschools of Reggio Emilia familiar to many early childhood educators. The article describes an authentic project that enhanced undergraduate and postgraduate participants' understanding of the impact of collaboration, conversation, and documentation. Through this experience, participants came to see these concepts as significant elements in reflective teacher practice.
