Are you curious about the Reggio Emilia approach but not quite sure where to begin? Working in the Reggio Way helps early childhood teachers bring the reflective, high-quality practices of Reggio Emilia to American programs. Based on an American teacher's experience observing and working in the schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy, this book informs you about the practical, day-to-day elements of Reggio-inspired ways.

You will learn about the:

• Physical environment and space in which children learn
• Organization of both the children's and teacher's time
• Reggio approach to curriculum through progettazione, or projects
• Observation, documentation, and questioning that give life to the curriculum
• Participation of family and community in the learning process

Working in the Reggio Way asks you to reexamine your view of the child, and to align your program with your values, the hallmark of Reggio practice. It also includes interactive activities for individual or group reflection to help transform your work with Reggio tools. Softbound, 224 pgs.

Review by: Melody Angles, Amazon.com - June 19, 2006
I bought this book after it was recommended in a professional mentor group as a great resource for making authentic changes in individual settings. I found the book to be engaging and easy to read. The suggestions are very practical and respect the individuality of each school site that may use the book. I found the book to be completely process oriented and made me much more aware of the history and thinking in Reggio than other sources I had consulted before. I love that is it a first person account and not based on distant research but original research. I would recommend this book for anyone looking to begin the process of change in their school.

I have had the pleasure and opportunity to have had Ms. Wurm work as my program's consultant this year. Reading "Working in the Reggio Way A Beginners Guide for Teachers" really brings all of the theory and practice that Julie Lives, Walks and Breathes! I found this book to be "People Friendly" and a hard one to put down! This book really empowers ECE teachers in creating our own "Reggio Way" here in the states. It's also a book which reminds us to place children first.
