Reggio Emilia Approach
What did you notice in the video?
Adopting Reggio Emilia on Vancouver Island?
Lack of written curriculum and formal model - follows the children's interests rather than academic outcomes and goals
No specific Reggio Emilia certification required by teachers
Classroom may become chaotic if there is no specific outcomes being taught or whole group instruction
Resources in Canada are different than the resources that are available in Italy

Implementing Reggio Emilia in Canada
How would it look in a Canadian School System?
Societal beliefs are different in Canada
Example: Reggio environments do not contain much structure. To canadians, the environment may appear chaotic.
"There are certain limitations that make it impossible to replicate in perfect form, however reconstructing the approach makes it possible to consider a similar pedagogy that makes it achievable within the Canadian Education system."

Classrooms will never be a direct replication when outside the walls of culture.
