The Hundred Languages of Children: the Reggio Emilia Experience in Transformation, 3rd Edition.
Edited by Carolyn Edwards, Lella Gandini & George Forman
This new third edition traces the evolution of the world-renowned preschool system in Reggio Emilia as it continues to respond to the demographic and political changes in Northern Italy over the last 15 years. The adaptation of this system to increased immigration, shifts in party politics, economic pressures, and their own international celebrity provides us with a model of professionalism, care and quality. This book provides the reader with a historical and contemporary overview of the Reggio Emilia experience and addresses in detail three central themes: teaching and learning in the context of building relationships, the use and evolution of the hundred languages of children, and the integration of documentation into the process of observing, reflecting, and communicating among educators, children and parents.
