In Possible Schools, Ann Lewin-Benham showed us that we can create schools that engage the minds of children and involve parents, even in urban settings. In this book, she describes projects in a school that successfully adapted the Reggio Approach with Head Start-eligible children. She explains how to use the Reggio Approach to address current major concerns in early education, including helping children become self-disciplined, making sure children are ready for 1st grade, assessing children's progress, and laying a foundation for literacy. Presenting a multitude of examples of excellent preschool practice, this dynamic book, provides teachers with an opportunity to reflect on what they know and understand about young children, and illustrates how they can make changes in their classrooms to expand and improve learning.
