co-inquiry model, power of listening


Has there ever been a time when you felt stuck in your decision regarding your curriculum? What steps did you take to move forward? The presentation is to remind educators that the feeling of getting stuck can be a great opportunity to truly see and listen to how children are wondering and questioning their learning experiences. Emergent curriculum is a powerful tool that pushes educators to embrace the unknown, be curious, and learn more by pushing through moments of stickiness. Using the co-inquiry model, educators learn to listen to children's voices and understand what they are expressing through their play, action, and words.
