Our typical Study Day includes conversations and stories about many of the core practices that support a responsive curriculum. Some visitors may prefer a closer look at one or more specific topics, either because they have already attended a general Study Day, or because of a current emphasis in their own programs. All of these topics will be touched on in a general Study Day, but one or two could be discussed in greater depth, for groups wanting to bring a particular content focus to their Study Day visit.

How can materials, furnishings, and room arrangements support and enhance our child-centered, responsive teaching and learning? Participants will consider what’s working and not working in their current classroom spaces, and draw inspiration from Hilltop classrooms, as well as from photos of schools in Reggio Emilia, Italy, and Auckland, New Zealand. 

[/et_pb_blurb][et_pb_blurb title=”Pedagogical Documentation ” image_max_width=”none” _builder_version=”3.0.87″ border_style=”solid”]

How – and why – do we notice and record the work and play happening in our classrooms…and how do we share those stories with children, families, and colleagues? Participants will practice using formats for documenting children’s learning, including Hilltop’s “Four Elements” model, and the “Learning Stories” model developed in New Zealand.

How can we shift our reliance on pre-planned, teacher-directed curricula, and design learning based on the students’ interests and questions? Participants will discuss structures for uncovering children’s interests and engaging in reciprocal planning. This session will include practice with protocols for studying children’s work, for the purposes of making meaning and planning responsive curriculum. 

[/et_pb_blurb][et_pb_blurb title=”Family Engagement” image_max_width=”none” _builder_version=”3.0.87″ border_style=”solid”]

How could we welcome family members to our programs, meet with them through the year, and include them in planning curriculum and assessing their children? Participants will encounter strategies for connecting with families that can lead to deeper collaboration, and partnership in support of children’s learning.

How might we take inspiration from children’s questions, comments, and play to develop longer-term studies and research projects in our classrooms? Participants will explore models for scaffolding in-depth studies with children, and hear stories from current classroom educators that describe a variety of small-group and large group investigations. 

[/et_pb_blurb][et_pb_blurb title=”Anti-Bias Education” image_max_width=”none” _builder_version=”3.0.87″ border_style=”solid”]

How do we support children to be competent citizens in a diverse world, in conjunction with a child-centered responsive curriculum? Participants will unpack the complexities of working towards equity and social justice in early childhood classrooms, and consider both responsive and proactive opportunities for developing cultural competence and furthering the goals of Anti-Bias Education.
