“We can never think of the child in the abstract. When we think about a child, when we pull out a child to look at, that child is already tightly connected and linked to a certain reality of the world — she has relationships and experiences. We cannot separate this child from a particular reality. She brings these experiences, feelings, and relationships into school with her.” Loris Malaguzzi, Your Image of the Child: Where Teaching Begins

How might school be a place for each child to develop their sense of civic participation and belonging?  Holding a strong image of the child invites us to keep our classroom walls permeable: to seek connections between the feelings and experiences children are having with each other, their personal identities, and the larger world that we recognize they have a right to know about.  This session explores practices in working with primary grades children that keep those potentially disparate and untended lives an integrated whole.
