The first book of its kind, 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 and constructive Italian curriculum by combining discussions of Reggio concepts with examples of their application in American schools. Written in simple, clear language by foremost American and Italian authorities in the field, the book answers the burgeoning need for information on this emergent, inquiry-based, project approach philosophy in early childhood education. Offering practical, real-life examples and advice, it shares experiences of ordinary teachers working to apply the Reggio Approach in their own classrooms, and demonstrates its wide applicability by discussing its implementation in a variety of teaching settings - including preschool, elementary school, with inner city children, in children's museums and more. College professors and practicing teachers in Early Childhood, Education or Home Economics.

Because First Steps Toward Teaching The Reggio Way is written for practicing and potential teachers and directors, it first describes the most essential features of the Reggio philosophy from the Italian point of view and then concentrates on providing examples and practical advice from people in the United States who have been inspired by that philosophy and who are grappling with how to apply aspects of it in their American settings.About the Author:
