Young children are encouraged to explore their environment and express themselves through all of their available "expressive, communicative, and cognitive languages," whether they be words, movement, drawing, painting, building, sculpture, shadow play, collage, dramatic play, or music, to name a few. From the beginning, there has been an explicit recognition of the relationship or partnership among parents, educators, and children.

Classrooms are organized to support a highly collaborative problem-solving approach to learning. Other important features are the use of small groups in project learning, teacher-child continuity two co-teachers work with the same class group for 3 years , and the community-based management method of governance.

In Reggio Emilia, education is seen as a communal activity and sharing of culture through joint exploration among children and adults who together open topics to speculation and discussion.

The approach provides us with new ways to think about the nature of the child as learner, the role of the teacher, school organization and management, the design and use of physical environments, and cur- FIGURE 1. One of the main squares in the city of Reggio Emilia. Because of all these features, the Reggio Emilia approach is important and exciting to Americans. All of these are blended together with el ments of past and present history and culture, such as the strong regional traditions of participatory democracy; that is, citizen alliances for solidarity and cooperation.

A word frequently heard in discussions among Reggio educators is civile "civil" , and the child is understood to have rights to "civility," "civilization," and "civic conscience. Reggio Emilia is known throughout Italy as a livable city, with characteristically low unemployment and crime, high prosperity, honest and effective local government institutions, and ample, high-quality social services Bohlen, The Emilia Romagna region, in which the city is located, has been found to have a very high level of civic communitycitizens bound together by horizontal relations of social solidarity, reciprocity, and cooperation, as opposed to vertical relations of authority and dependency Putnam, Putnam collected data revealing that among the 20 regions of Italy, Emilia Romagna has the highest levels of citizen responsibility and basic trust in local institutions and office-holders as evidenced by high voter turnouts, newspaper readership, and membership in clubs and associations.

Popular concepts of participatory democracy assert that people can and should speak out "as protagonists" on behalf of themselves and their group, on the basis of their own experience and at their own level of consciousness Hellman, Citizens revere their traditions of mass organization and people across social class lines come together to solve social problems by means of political parties and economic cooperatives agricultural, marketing, credit, labor, producer, and consumer unions and cooperatives.

These collectivist tendencies are not of recent origin, but rather trace back to the craft guilds and communal republics of the 12th century; they are a strong source of identity and pride to the people of the Emilia Romagna region, in general, and the city of Reggio Emilia, in particular. Clearly, ideas about participatory democracy and civic community are fundamental to what the educators in Reggio Emilia feel about their educational vision and mission Edwards, Extended day service: a.

Staffs weekly meetings Aug. Staffs daily schedule 1st shift teacher a. Reprinted by permission. A new, expanded catalog is available from Reggio Children USA along with a videotape to accompany and introduce the exhibit by Lyon It describes and illustrates the philosophy and pedagogy of the Reggio Emilia approach, through photographs depicting moments of teaching and learning; explanatory scripts and panels many containing texts of children's words ; and samples of children's paintings, drawings, collages, and constructions.

As a medium of communication, the exhibit is wonderfully suited to occasions such as meetings, conferences, and workshops, where people meet face to face and are able to open themselves up in a full, intense, and focused way to the story that the Reggio Emilia educators want to tell. Created by the Reggio educators to inform both public and professional audiences, the exhibit in several ways exemplifies the very essence of the educational approach.

First of all, the exhibit was authored and designed not individually, but collectively.

Loris Malaguzzi, founder and for many years Director of the Reggio Emilia system of municipal early childhood education, led the task of preparing the exhibit, but demonstrating the quality of results coming from group effort many of the administrators and teachers from throughout the city contributed time, labor, ideas, and the results of recording project work in their classrooms.

Reggio educators believe, as we shall see in detail, that reciprocity, exchange, and dialogue lie at the heart of successful education. Second, the exhibit plunges the visitor into a form of learning that is multileveled and multimodal. Looking at the large, highly detailed panels, densely embedded with words and images, the mind and senses are overwhelmed with information and impressions coming in on multiple channels all at once.

This gives visitors the immediate and tangible experience of learning through "one hundred languages. Third, wandering at will through the exhibit, visitors find themselves on a circular path as they retrace their steps and return repeatedly to favorite panels or themes, each time with deeper understanding.

In just this way, education in Reggio Emilia is anything but linear; it is, instead, an open-ended spiral. Young children are not marched or hurried sequentially from one different activity to the next, but instead they are encouraged to repeat key experiences, observe and reobserve, consider and reconsider, represent and rerepresent. Fourth, the exhibit as a form of communication grew directly out of what Reggio Emilia educators call documentation.

Early in their history Malaguzz this volume Chapter 3 , the educators realized that systematically documenting the process and results of their work with children would simultaneously serve three key functions: It would provide the children with a concrete and visible "memory" of what they said and did in order to serve as ajumping-off point for next steps in learning; provide the educators with a tool for research and a key FIGURE 1.

Silva says: "When I look at myself it is as if I saw another child. This bold insight led to the development of documentation into a professional art form in Reggio Emilia, involving use of slide shows, posters, short books, and increasingly, videotapes, to record children's project experiences.

Finally, the exhibit is never completed; it never reaches a state at which the Reggio educators say, "Now, it is perfect. In just such a way, the educational work in Reggio Emilia never becomes set and routine but instead is always undergoing reexamination and experimentation. For this reason, the Reggio educators refuse the term model when talking about their approach, and instead speak of "our project" and "our experience.

Unlike a book, it cannot be taken home for study and reflection.

It cannot answer all of our questions about the history and philosophy of the program; curriculum, planning, and teacher FIGURE 1. Thus, the need for this book was born. It allows for a more extended and analytic treatment of the Reggio Emilia approach in all of its aspects, and it provides a forum for both Italians and North Americans to tell what they know about the Reggio Emilia approach. The first edition, published in , was intended to be a starting point, and it has succeeded in initiating discussions, introducing readers to the fundamental points of the Reggio Emilia approach, and describing first steps in using and adapting it in this country.

Yet, already since , there has been such an upsurge of American interest and such a deepening of reflections about the Reggio approach, as well as increased sophistication in adaptations and applications to the American context, that the need for this second edition became apparent. A measure of the deepening critical reflection and advanced work of adapting and applying insights from Reggio Emilia can be seen in the fact that in Part IV, The Extension of the Reggio Emilia Approach into American Classrooms, all but two of the chapters are entirely new.

Another index of the growing interest and involvement can be seen in the new list of Additional Resources at the end of the volume, which has not only tripled in length but also has additional new subsections covering books, slide sets, electronic discussion groups, and dissertations and theses, in addition to articles and chapters, video resources, the exhibit, and the newsletter. Preparing this edition, in turn, allowed our Italian colleagues to respond to the intervening years of contact and dialogue with Americans, by revisiting and revising or expanding their original chapters and making possible new interviews that directly introduce parents' experiences and perspectives and describe more fully ways of working with the parents and children with disabilities.

And yet, as the reader will see, although the Reggio Emilia approach has become widely known in the United States, it has not become just a slogan or formula, a recipe or commercial commodity, a fad or fashion. It has not indeed, cannot be thought of as any kind of quick fix, because quick fixes never work in education, and moreover, programs and models from overseas can never be transplanted wholesale from one cultural context to another without extensive change and adaptation.

Instead, what we have seen and learned in Reggio Emilia has become a source of energy and inspiration, as we wrestle with our own continuing problems of public school reform and uneven quality, poor coordination, and lack of access and affordability of other kinds of early childhood services.

The discourse about the Reggio Emilia experience has entered our pool of common referents and become a source of powerful terms such as reconnaissance, documentation, progettazione, image of the chil tion as relationship, revisiting cognitive knots as we develop our own shared v ulary and set of exemplars for talking and arguing in ever more productive ways about theory and practice in education.

First there is the introductory chapter by the editors, who originally worked together on the exhibit and conference, "The Hundred Languages of Children," held at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst in December It was during and immediately after this conference that Carolyn Edwards proposed that we collaborate to edit a book about the municipal preprimary schools of Reggio Emiliathe first book of its kind.

We felt that we had complementary strengths that would yield a useful and significant book. Carolyn Edwards, who also helped host the exhibit in Lexington, Kentucky, has an extensive background in cultural anthropology and social development, and for many years directed the early childhood laboratory school at the University of Massachusetts. Leila Gandini, bridge to the Italian culture and its people, has consulted to many early childhood systems in Italy, including Reggio Emilia, and has a strong background in art education as well as early childhood education.

George Forman has studied constructivism from the beginning of the Piagetian movement in the late s and founded the School for Constructive Play in Amherst, Massachusetts. All three of us had the fortunate opportunity to observe and study these schools during many trips to Reggio Emilia: Leila for more than 20 years, Carolyn since , and George since As we worked on the exhibit and conference in Amherst, in collaboration with our Italian friends, we formed a broader network of educators whose work is presented in this book.

Major networks have also been established by Baji Rankin, host of the exhibit in Boston, Massachusetts, and leader of delegations to Reggio Emilia; by Rebecca New, host of the exhibit in Syracuse, New York, and leader of other delegations; by Rosalyn and Eli Saltz, hosts of the exhibit in Detroit, Michigan, and founders of the newsletter, Innovations in Early Education: The International Reggio Exchange, edited by P Weissman and Judy Kaminsky; and by many others.

This chapter is intended to provide necessary historical background on the book and on the early childhood system in Reggio Emilia. Lilian Katz, a world traveler and past President of the National Association for the Education of Young Children, can better than anyone point out lessons to be learned from the experience of Reggio Emilia. In Chapter 2, she compares and contrasts these ideas with aims and principles she has discovered to be true of education in the United States, where she has been a professional leader since the days of compensatory education in the late s.

Beginning with Part II, we turn quickly to what the Italians say about themselves. What distinguishes this section is that the chapters are written as interviews with the authors. Not only did this process expedite the completion of each chapter, but the interview format itself indicates that this book resulted from lengthy and in-depth dialogue with our Italian colleagues.

Under the Dome

The lead chapter in this section Chapter 3 presents an interview with Loris Malaguzzi, founder of the municipal early childhood system in Reggio Emilia.

It is welcoming that Malaguzzi took the first edition of this book as an opportunity to write, for the first time, a comprehensive review of his life's work and the history of the municipal early childhood system in Reggio Emilia. With his passing in January , we dedicate this book to his memory and vision. In the second edition, we have added a new piece about projects and about representation.

Sergio Spaggiari, the next director of the municipal early childhood system, lays out Chapter 4 the organizational structure and how it functions. He has added commentary on recent trends in parent participation and the social fabric of quality education.

Carlina Rinaldi, the first pedagogista pedgogical coordinator to work with Loris Malaguzzi in curriculum theory, explains Chapter 5 the constructivist base of progettezjone and documentatio particularly their foundation in observation, dialogue, communication, and joint problem-solving at all levels of the system. The pedagogista links the systems of schools and paren into a coherent whole in terms of values, educational objectives, and a shared image of the competent child.

Chapter 8, based on a new interview with parents by Leila Gandini, allows parents to give direct testimony of their commitment toward and sense of benefits received from participating in these municipal schools.

This analysis draws from principles avowed by the Reggio teachers or implied by their practice. The chapters lay out these principles in the American idiom and theoretical constructs. Leila Gandini Chapter 9 describes the way that school environments in Reggio have been built to maximize quality of social encounters and the relation between the local space and its surrounding community.

She reminds us that environments are "read" by their users and carry potent messages about our images of children. Carolyn Edwards Chapter 10 , through her videoethnographic research on teacher behavior and meaning systems in Reggio Emilia, describes the multiple roles of the teacher and presents commentary on transcripts of actual teacher-child interactions.

She helps us understand the finesse of teaching based on listening and entering a partnership with children. Cathleen Smith Chapter 11 interviewed Ivana Soncini, the pedagogista for spcial education. She provides us with information about inclusion as a policy and practice in Reggio Emilia, including the observations of herself and Sharon Palsha, another North American expert in early childhood special education. As she describes how children are challenged to plan and build a dinosaur 9 feet tall, she reveals the processes of children learning about measurment, as well as the social implications of such a project.

George Forman and Brenda Fyfe Chapter 13 present a synthesis of Italian and American ideas that they call negotiated learning, to signify that knowledge is never receivedut, instead negotiated through a co-constructive process.

Rebecca New Chapter 14 renews the discussion of the social basis of constructivism as a philosophy of education in Reggio Emilia. John Nimmo Chapter 16 opens the section with a series of reflections about the cultural assumptions that can blind educators to the true potential for community in early childhood settings, and for young children to be active contributors to those communities. Rebecca Kantor and Kimberlee Whately Chapter 17 suggest how their thinking was changed by visits to Reggio Emilia and how these insights have been used in project work with preschool children including toddlers at The Ohio State University laboratory preschool.

Ann Lewin and her collaborators Chapter 18 present the history and messages of one of the most successful and complete adaptations of Reggio Emilia in the United States, constructed with the strong support by Amelia Gambetti who consulted there for three years, at the Model Early Learning Center in Washington, DC.

The chapter documents the change process that a program undergoes as transforming new methods are introduced. In Chapter 19, George Forman, Moonja Lee, and four teachers from an elementary school in Amherst, Massachusetts, transform a well-known project from Reggio Emilia, "The City in the Rain," into a New England version, "The City in the Snow," addressing cycles of symbolization to highlight how children need to revisit concepts to broaden and deepen their understanding.

In this chapter and the next, we see the upward extension of American interpretations of Reggio principles into the elementary years.

Eva Tarini and Lynn White Chapter 20 apply their insights from Reggio Emilia to work with first graders at the Crow Island School in Winnetka, Illinois, and discuss a reflective activity and a project about fathers'jobs. The final three chapters turn our attention to work with adults.

This book will thrill every reader who's ever loved a novel by King. Resumo Under the Dome Adapted as a major TV series, produced by Steven Spielberg, King's bestselling novel centres on a small town suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible dome.

The end of every chapter hooks you into the next, drawing you inside a psychological drama that is so rich, you don't read it, you live it. It is the story of the small town of Chester's Mill, Maine which is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. No one can get in and no one can get out. The normal rules of society are suddenly changed and when food, electricity and water run short, the community begins to crumble.

As a new and more sinister social order develops, Dale Barbara, Iraq veteran, teams up with a handful of intrepid citizens to fight against the corruption that is sweeping through the town and to try to discover the source of the Dome before it is too late.

CARACTERÍSTICAS DO EBOOK

Doing so will help us better understand those factors that are common to other educational programs in Italy, those that pertain to the Emilia Romagna region, and those that are unique products of the dedication and vision of the educators of Reggio Emilia. Historically, early education in Italy has been caught in the tangled web of relations between church and state.

The enormous power conflicts between the centuries-old Catholic Church and the young Italian state formed only in have affected many modern outcomes, including early childhood education. Around in the northern and central parts of Italy, charitable institutions began to emerge. For young children, there came into being institutions that were, to some extent, forerunners to the two major public early education programs currently offered in Italy: the infant-toddler centers asili nido, or "safe nests" , servin infants aged 4 months to 3 years; and preprimary schools scuole delttnfanzia, "schools of infancy" , serving children 3 to 6 years old.

The Infant-Toddler Centers Asili Nido The early forerunners to the modern infant-toddler centers were creches presepi for breast-fed or newly weaned infants of working mothers. Industrialists set these up at their factories. For example, in Pinerolo, Piedmont, one was started in the silk mill, where the cradles were rocked by the mill's hydraulic engine.

Other similar institutions were promoted by the public administrations of the small, separate states that shared the Italian peninsula prior to unification. Still others resulted from initiatives by private benefactors Delia Peruta, After the unification of the Italian state, these institutions continued to develop, but with difficulties.

It was only toward the beginning of the 20th century that some of the private initiatives began to be supported by public funding, mostly municipal. The idea was to move away from charitable assistance, dispensed only by private means, toward programs combining prevention and assistance and funded by both private and public sectors.The end of every chapter hooks you into the next, drawing you inside a psychological drama that is so rich, you don't read it, you live it.
