Developed for upper level undergraduate and graduate courses in Early Childhood Education that emphasize emergent curriculum and the project approach to early childhood instruction.
The first book of its kind on the market, this timely, hands-on guide examines how real teachers in real schools are working to grasp the principles of the Reggio Emilia Approach and apply them in their every day classroom settings. Written for practicing and future teachers by leading advocates of the Reggio philosophy, it explores the most essential features of this emergent constructivist and Italian curriculum by combining discussions of Reggio concepts with examples of their application in American schools.
