In Bringing Learning to Life Louise Cadwell builds on her enormously popular book, Bringing Reggio Emilia Home. Cadwell helps American educators understand what it means to use ideas from the Reggio Approach in their classrooms. In new and dynamic ways, Cadwell once again takes readers inside the day-to-day practice of a group of early childhood educators. This time she describes the growth and evolution of the work in the St. Louis Reggio Collaborative over a 10 year period.
“Louise Cadwell and her colleagues have honored the extraordinary work of the preschools in Reggio Emilia in the best possible way. This book is a rich portrait of the exploration of the meaning of Reggio’s work in their own schools, giving us vivid portraits of both the teachers’ and the students’ work and learning.” – Steve Seidel, Director Project Zero at the Harvard Graduate School of Education
