In the Spirit of the Studio

In the Spirit of the Studio : Learning from the Atelier of Reggio Emilia

This critically acclaimed, lavishly illustrated book will help educators create the highest quality learning opportunities for a new generation of children. The Second Edition features substantial and important changes, including the addition of new chapters by pioneers of the work that happens in the atelier who draw on several decades of experience.

The atelier, or studio, is a key element of the renowned preschools and infant-toddler centers of Reggio Emilia, Italy. This beautiful, full-color resource explores how the experiences of children interacting with rich materials in the atelier affect an entire school's approach to the construction and expression of thought and learning. The authors provide examples of projects and address practical aspects of the atelier, including organizing the environment and using materials. No other book presents a more thorough examination of the philosophy, practice, and essential influence of the Reggio-inspired studio.

Book Features:

A comprehensive approach that addresses learning, collaboration, relationships, and community.
The writing and practice of influential educators from Reggio Emilia, including a new chapter by Vea Vecchi.
A window into many ateliers/studios within the United States that have created settings and experiences to suit their unique contexts.
Updated conversations with the protagonists from Reggio Emilia as they speak about the history and evolution of the atelier.
