This final project comes from Chapter 8 in “Learning Together with Young Children” by Margie Carter and Deb Curtis (Two very passionate leaders in our field!).
I always enjoyed ending class with this chapter from their book. It reminds us that we are on this journey in our work with young children. It helps us evaluate ourselves and our purpose in this very important work that we do.
