Multi-Dimensional Research: A Lyla Story.
As the teachers and children have settled into a new school year, certain shifts have occurred. Upon welcoming a new group of infants into the community, we have watched new routines be established, different roles be taken on, and new relationships blossom. New stories have emerged, while familiar stories grow deeper. Lyla’s work around baby doll care is one story that has expanded since the start of the new year.
Another dimension of Lyla’s research is revealed through her work with baby dolls. Lyla carries out her own care giving cycles, tells stories, and brings others into her research as she works with the dolls each day.
As co-researchers we wonder, how will Lyla’s learning progress? What impact will her research have on her classmates? How did Lyla’s experience in a mixed age community last year create a foundation for her current learning?
