Maximize your reflective teaching while working with early learning standards


In this new edition of their classic book, Curtis and Carter offer an alternative framework to approach standardization and data-driven mandates. This book puts young children at the center of planning your curriculum. Rather than following a prescriptive curriculum, teachers can translate educational theories into concrete ideas for working with children and families.

Over 100 inspiring and engaging stories help you learn to create a welcoming classroom culture, develop routines for self-regulation, and use observation and reflection to enhance experiences for the children in your care. The authors share engaging and inspiring stories of teachers who are using this approach.

This edition has been updated to examine how to work with mandated curriculum, rating scales, and assessment tools, while practicing reflective, child-centered teaching.

Age focus: 0–5.

Softbound, 304 pgs.

Review by: Kristie Norwood, Ounce of Prevention - August 17, 2017
"Reading through this book provides a framework, a canvas if you will, you can develop your program/painting to represent the richness and complexity of your staff, children and families. This book is foundational to the rich tapestry of our work."
Review by: Susan Stacey - August 17, 2017
"Important questions appear at the very beginning of this thought-provoking book: What do we believe the purpose of education to be? What is quality? Who gets to decide? In Carter and Curtis' usual friendly, accessible, and encouraging style, this second edition of Learning Together with Young Children then leads us from big questions to our everyday challenges, to core principles, and then on to practical and vivid examples of how teachers have learned alongside and with children to 'live fully and teach well.'"
Review by: Isauro Escamilla, NAEYC Governing Board member - August 17, 2017
"Drawing from the latest discoveries on brain development, holistic education, anti-bias curricula, and teacher research this book is a must-have for new or experienced early childhood educators, coaches, administrators and policy makers. It offers inspirational stories from real classrooms where school communities have transformed not only their environments, but the way they envision the educational experience for young children and their families."
