Can you tell me more about Reggio Emilia?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

It sounds like a really cool approach, I'm kind of seeing a cross between Montessori and Waldorf but without the mystical stuff that turns me off Waldorf. Can it be used in a homeschooling setting? Can anyone tell me a bit more?

You might want to read some of the posts on the Camp Creek Blog http://www.whiteoakschool.com/

She is reggio inspired if not hardcore reggio.

 

You could also check out some of the ideas at  Brightworks school which seems a bit like a cross between a sudbury/montessori school and a reggio one. http://sfbrightworks.org/

(check out how they explain their project arcs). It's a school but I can see it working in a homeschooling environment in a similar fashion.

 

Here's a list of reggio homeschooling blogs and other resources

hi, i'm lori from the camp creek blog :)

 

my blog has moved to http://project-based-homeschooling.com/camp-creek-blog/

 

i am very reggio-inspired; i ran a reggio-inspired school for several years and my project-based homeschooling approach draws heavily from reggio influences.

 

kate at an everyday story is doing some wonderful blogging about reggio at home with young children:
