from an exhibition of children listening....

On a field trip to the Oregon World Forestry Center with my students last week, I was thrilled to find an exhibit in a side room dedicated to children's works from the Reggio Emilia school system in Italy.  Much of the show was documentation of young children's work with sound and listening as well as their designs for sound sculptures.  I was reminded to pick up 'The Hundred Languages of Children' again and to keep reading and thinking about how to transpose Reggio practices to the context of what we're doing at Springwater School.
