Children as the Source of Curriculum
May 3, 2019
The most practical thing we can achieve in our teaching is insight into what is happening inside us as we teach.
-Parker Palmer

“What we believe about children’s rights and capacities informs how we craft professional learning. If we believe that children are capable of inquiry and are active constructors of knowledge, then we create opportunities for exploration that grow from and speak into children’s passions and pursuits and their developmental unfolding. And we provide educators with support for reflective, responsive planning. Educators, in turn, engage children with curiosity and attention, with the dispositions of researchers, seeing children as the source of curriculum.”
- Ann Pelo and Margie Carter, from their ground-breaking book, From Teaching to Thinking.

Naturally, children are eager for connective relationships, they are curious, they are thinkers. This foundational text is a pedagogical companion for educators that strengthens their own development as thinkers, researchers, innovators, and constructors of knowledge so that they can pass on this way of being to the children in their care.
