I have been teaching a long time but decided to go back and take some child development classes at the junior college this summer as a refresher. I am taking the observation and experience class in their child development center which is a reggio-type class. I have found it very interesting - some I will use, some I won't. Today they were discussing what they are doing in the fall. They are going to turn it into a community classroom - not sure of the term. 30 kids, 4 teachers and their aides all together in one giant room. They will all look after all the kids and collaborate on the activities. I don't think I could do that! What do you think?
