Ann lecturing at The Exploratorium in San Francisco

Ann lectures on many education-related topics. Her lectures consist of scores of images, 100 or more, from diverse sources. Ann visited the Reggio Emilia (Italy) schools many times in the 1990s when delegations had only 15-20 people and she could spend a day observing in a classroom. With Loris Malaguzzi, Carlina Rinaldi, and other Reggio educators she planned two national symposia held in 1993 and 1994 in Washington, DC. Her lectures on the Reggio Approach use images to describe the 9 essential features of the Approach. One presentation is about the Reggio Infant/Toddler Centers for 3-month to 3-year-olds; another is about the Preschools for 3- to 6-year-olds. She frequently lectures on her adaptation of the Reggio Approach for Head Start-eligible families. Other topics on which she is requested to speak include school change and fostering early literacy.  Ann regularly designs presentaitons to meet organizations' specific needs.
