I am reading Sydney Gurewitz Clemens and Leslie Gleim (with Jed Handler): Seeing Young Children with New Eyes; What we’ve learned from Reggio Emilia about children and ourselves, 2nd Edition, 2012 (eceteacher.org) .
This book is about teaching young children, aged 2 through 7, those in nursery, preschool and primary years, with a deep respect for “A Strong Image of the Child.”
Sources for this approach include my hero Sylvia Ashton-Warner. Sydney writes about Sylvia Ashton-Warner: Clemens, S.G (1996). Pay Attention to the Children: Lessons for Teachers and Parents from Sylvia Ashton-Warner. (order from http://www.eceteacher.org/)
I am also looking forward to reading the following work described in Seeing Young Children with New Eyes: Scheinfeld, D.R. & Haigh, K.M. & Scheinfeld S.J.P (2008). We are All Explorers: Learning and Teaching with Reggio Principles in Urban Settings . N.Y: Teachers College Press.
