homeschooling, , Education, Teaching

Building on her enormously popular book, Bringing Reggio Emilia Home, Louise Cadwell helps American educators understand what it means to use ideas from the Reggio Approach in their classrooms. In new and dynamic ways, Cadwell once again takes readers inside the day-to-day practice of a group of early childhood educators. This time she describes the growth and evolution of the work in the St. Louis Reggio Collaborative over the past 10 years.

Bringing Learning to Life:

Addresses the fundamental principles of the Reggio Approach as they are experienced in the daily life of three American schools that have attained a very high level of understanding and practice. Uses an engaging, journal-style format to describe real-life classrooms, including details on the flow of the day, parent participation, teacher collaboration, the importance of the environment, documenting students' work, and assessment. Features many illustrations of children's work as well as photos of "Reggio-inspired" classroom interiors and art materials, including some in full color. Recounts the significant highlights of the author's week-long visit to Reggio Emilia, illustrating connections with the work being done in the St. Louis schools.
