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.
