Reggio Inspired Emergent Curriculum & Constructivist Practices in Early Childhood Education

About Us

Jane Tingle Broderick and Seongbock Hong met in 2000 at a Documentation Conference at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst where they both facilitated breakout sessions.

Their keen interest in documentation pedagogy led them to develop a tool – the Cycle of Inquiry System – to guide teacher educators and teachers to successfully plan and implement early childhood emergent curriculum with an inquiry focus.
