Learning Together With Young Children:
A Curriculum Framework for Reflective Teachers
Product Code: 414001
Publisher: Redleaf Press
Many curriculum books treat teaching as something you do to or for children. Deb Curtis and Margie Carter, best selling authors in the early learning field, believe teaching is a collaborative process in which you reexamine your own philosophy and practices while facilitating children's learning.
Each chapter in this curriculum framework includes a conceptual overview followed by classroom stories and vibrant photos to illustrate the concepts.
You will learn to create materials and a classroom culture reflecting your values; teach through observation, reflection, inquiry and action; and encourage children to represent their learning in multiple ways, including songs, stories, and drama. Age Focus: 0-5. Softbound, 272 pgs.
Review: Tools for Teachers-NAEYCs magazine for Pre-k teachers - February 1, 2012
Written with the idea that teachers
should teach children less and
learn with them more, this book
offers teachers practical ideas for doing
so. Curtis and Carter encourage
a focus on children, their interests,
and their learning. They encourage
teachers to look closely at their classrooms and find ways to
encourage children to look closely at and thinking deeply
about the world around them.
