This book has been developed according to the requirements of the Certificate III (CHCE30113) and Diploma (CHC50113) of Early Childhood Education and Care qualifications in Australia. It supports the unit of competency: CHCECE020.
The book draws on the educational project of Reggio Emilia as a catalyst for thinking about the skills and knowledge required to establish and implement plans for developing cooperative behaviour.
It recognises the dominant discourse of behaviour guidance but will introduce the reader to a new paradigm on this concept. This book will position behaviour guidance in a broader context by looking at values and pedagogy. It will replace the term ‘cooperative behaviour’ with the term respectful relationships.
