Listening to the Minds of Children: An Act of Social Justice

BY MARLA MCLEAN
@ VOL 14 ON NOV 30, 2018

Stories from the work of Marla McLean as an Atelierista in a Reggio Emilia Inspired DC Public School. The Atelier (or Art Studio) with the Atelierista as a facilitator, disrupts and expands possibilities within a school. The 100 Languages, (access to and practice with diverse materials, media, making) offer children ages 3-6 the opportunity to make their ideas, wonders, and questions visible. Through carefully thought out projects and provocations, conditions are created for children to develop empathy, altruism, and interconnectedness with the world around them, creating ripples of hope in an unjust world.
