Total Learning is a practical book based on forty years of teaching young children, their families, and student teachers as well as on the author's experiences with the preprimary schools in Reggio Emilia. The book advocates constructing curriculum based on emerging interests within a practical, flexible, thoughtful, teacher-made plan. BecauseTotal Learning focuses on the developmental needs of children rather than on specific subject areas, it is divided according to the emotional, social, creative, physical, and cognitive selves. Such topics as science, art, and social studies are included, but they are incorporated into discussions about the self they predominantly benefit. The book advocates curriculum that is age-appropriate, nourished by play, and intended to encourage children to become independent, creative, thoughtful people. For teachers and future teachers specializing in Early Childhood Education.
