Understanding How to Teach and Learn Using the Reggio Approach

In Powerful Children, the author describes projects in a school that successfully adapted the Reggio Emilia Approach with disadvantaged children. She explains how to use the Reggio Emilia Approach to address current major concerns in early education, including helping children become self-disciplined, making sure children are ready for school, assessing childrens progress, and laying a foundation for literacy.

Presenting a multitude of examples of excellent preschool practice, this dynamic book:
– Introduces the concept of significant work that draws deeply on young childrens innate intelligences.
– Provides teachers with an opportunity to reflect on what they know and understand about young children.
– Illustrates how teachers can make changes in their classrooms to expand and improve learning.
– Describes robust activities from an urban preschool, including how each project relates to a particular teaching principle.
-Suggests more clearly defined standards and lays out policy implications for each.
