Dancing With Reggio Emilia
Metaphors for Quality

Author(s): Stefania Giamminuti (click on the author's name for more titles)

This is a book about the philosophical basis of a mode of early, preschool education. But that philosophical basis is not only set forth abstractly but explicated concretely by well observed examples of the daily life of those preschools. I happen to be a cittadino honorario of Reggio Emilia. And I confess that I am further honoured by the appearance of Ms Giamminuti’s book. For it brings that city and its pedagogical efforts into a universal context that honors us all.
[from the Foreword] Jerome Bruner, University Professor, New York University, NYC (USA)

As I read this book, the story emerged of a special educational project, seen and narrated through the eyes of a researcher who has positioned herself as a listener and observer of daily events in the municipal infant–toddler centres and ‘schools of childhood’ of Reggio Emilia. Stefania has narrated the possible which this experience attempts to bear witness to, proposing education as a primary and inalienable right of all children throughout the world.
[from the Epilogue] Claudia Giudici, President, Preschools and Infant—toddler Centres — Istituzione of the Municipality of Reggio Emilia

Your book stands out in that it gives a genuine feeling for the schools and the community while also speaking to the already published literature.
Howard Gardner, Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education, Harvard Graduate School of Education (USA).

Documentation and the Early Years Learning Framework
Researching in Reggio Emilia and Australia

Author(s): Jan Millikan, Stefania Giamminuti (click on the author's name for more titles)

This new title in our EYLF series links the EYLF and documentation. Drawing on research from both Reggio Emilia and Australia, the authors are well placed to offer these insights.

From the Foreword by Jennifer Sumsion:

Jan and Stefania have taken up the challenge of ensuring that belonging, being and becoming doesn’t descend into cliché. As they explain, they have written ‘with the aim of sparking enriched responses to belonging, being and becoming’. And indeed, they have succeeded beautifully in showing how the principles of the Reggio Emilia educational project in Northern Italy can map so effectively onto the principles of the EYLF.

But importantly, they also show how bringing Reggio Emilia principles into conversation with the EYLF can provoke new ways of thinking about the possibilities of the EYLF. By focusing particularly on documentation, they make a timely and valuable contribution. They challenge some of the many myths about documentation that have emerged and taken hold over recent years. They complicate every day understandings and push readers to think more deeply about the possibilities that this distinctive aspect of early childhood practice affords. But equally importantly, they discuss ethical issues and related concerns that have been raised about documentation.

Educating Palates
Healthy Food for Growing Bodies and Minds - A Guide for Families & Childcare Centres

Author(s): Tony Sharpe (click on the author's name for more titles)

A cook book for growing bodies and minds.

All children need to be guided at some stage and taught how to eat healthily.

Educating a child’s palate is a rewarding process.

Long before celebrity chefs stormed our televisions demanding school canteens revolutionise and forego processed foods for healthier options, there was a small childcare centre in the Blue Mountains called Lizzards where the children had a daily changing menu of seasonal produce lovingly homecooked by a qualified chef – Tony Sharpe.

“MY child won’t eat THAT!” parents would say on their first visit to Lizzards, yet within weeks they were eating more than their words and begging Tony for his recipes. “NOW they’ll only eat YOUR food. What’s your secret?”...and so this book was written.

Engaging Adult Learners Using Multiple Intelligences CD

Author(s): Constant Hine (click on the author's name for more titles)

This resource is delivered in CD format for use on your Macintosh and Windows computer. An internet connection is NOT required.

The more ways you teach, the more people you reach. - Colin Rose

The application of Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences to teach children also applies to how you teach adults. Whether you're presenting in a lunchroom, boardroom, classroom or ballroom, you need to address the eight ways of learning to get your message to stick.

Just because content is offered doesn't mean it is learned. "Engaging Adult Learners Using Multiple Intelligences" will help you adapt your existing content to increase learner motivation through a systematic instructional approach to address the individual strengths and diverse intelligences of ALL the adults in your audience.

This is not your typical "speaker guide" that looked good in the bookstore but is now gathering dust on your bookshelf because it is so cumbersome to use. Rather, this is an interactive toolkit presented in digital format on CD, complete with hyperlinks that let you search and skip to exactly what you are looking for.

This resource "walks the talk," presenting strategies for teaching adults in the same way content should be thoughtfully presented to teach for understanding. It includes:

• 18 videos demonstrating teaching strategies in a live setting

• 49 active engagement activities sorted by intelligence

• 32 downloadable Word and PowerPoint templates you can modify to your specific content These down-to-earth practical strategies will help you address the learning principle that an audience's interaction with content is actually more important than the presentation of the content. This dynamic resource will transform your presentations, creating lasting change through authentic engagement, empowered learning, and intentional practice.
