Building Bridges: Curricula Notes
This community, arts and equity based curriculum promotes democracy and inclusion by systemically supporting teachers, parents and especially children. The conceptual framework places the child at the center and seeks to bring together multiple perspectives to allow for inquiry in every contextual experience. Contributors to this work argue that we must endeavor to continuously create a child-centered, research-based curriculum that is inclusive, innovative, sensitive, holistic, progressive, global and democratic. We must support the importance of multiple perspectives shaping our dialogue and our community and envision learning as a series of joyful discoveries that help children reach their creative capacities and develop a life-long love of learning.
