Reggio Emilia is a city in northern Italy which is internationally known for its approach to early childhood education. In this class, students will explore the origin and features of the Reggio Emilia approach, with a focus on getting started with Reggio. Through online modules and discussion, students will explore the origin and philosophy of the approach, as well Reggio-inspired practices. Learning is enhanced through a mandatory field trip to a Reggio-inspired school and post-field trip reflections. This is CPCC's third continuing education class related to the Reggio Emilia approach. These classes are non-sequential; students do not have to have completed prior classes in order to register for this class.
