Publisher's Summary:
Using examples from a Reggio-inspired school with children from ages 6 weeks to 6 years, the authors emphasize the importance of childrens rights and our responsibility as adults to hear their voices. Seen and Heard summarizes research and theory pertaining to young childrens rights in the United States, and offers strategies educators can use to ensure the inclusion of childrens perspectives in everyday decisions. Real-life classroom vignettes illustrate how young children perceive the idea of rights through observation and discussion. The authors work is based on these essential ideas: (1) the one hundred languages children use for exploring, discovering, constructing, representing, and conveying their ideas; (2) the pedagogy of listening, in which children and adults carefully attend to the world and to one another; (3) the notion that all children have the right to participate in the communities in which they reside.
