Event Details
Encounter the Wonder of Learning: Reggio Emilia's Approach to Children with "Special Rights" Return to listing


Note: This workshop will be held at the International Exhibit at Northgate Mall in Durham, NC, not at the UNC Friday Center in Chapel Hill. More details about the location will be provided shortly before the event.  Participants must provide their own transportation to Durham. 

You will visit the international traveling exhibit, The Wonder of Learning: The Hundred Languages of Children, which features the work of the young children, educators, families, and community of Reggio Emilia, Italy, a town that has more than a 50-year history of operating the best inclusive infant-toddler and preschool programs in the world.  The interactive exhibit serves as an educational tool for educators, families, policymakers, and the community at large for understanding the strong potential of all children and gives voice to advocacy for children's rights. In Reggio Emilia, children with disabilities are children with "special rights," who receive, among other special rights, top priority in enrollment in the municipal schools.

The session will also include a vividly illustrated presentation on Reggio Emilia's approach to inclusion and discuss how local children with special rights have engaged with the atelier spaces that are part of the exhibit. Participants also can engage in the ateliers and discuss how to incorporate Reggio Emilia's approach to working with children with special rights into their own work.
