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.

Eight Essential Techniques for Teaching with Intention
What Makes Reggio and Other Inspired Approaches Effective

Author(s): Ann Lewin-Benham (click on the author's name for more titles)

In her latest book, bestselling author Ann Lewin-Benham describes eight techniques that foster intentional and reflective classroom practice. She presents over 70 novel exercises to help teachers learn to use body, face, hands, voice, eyes, and word choices to precisely convey meaning. Some exercises are for teachers to practice, while others build intention and reflection in children. Dozens of scenarios from typical classroom situations contrast unintentional and intentional teaching behaviors. A self-assessment enables teachers to measure how intentional and reflective they become as they learn to use the eight techniques. This lively and often humorous resource is a companion to Lewin-Benham's Twelve Best Practices for Early Childhood Education, which explains what to teach and why. This new book explains how to teach.
