    One of the few staff development books on early learning standards, this resource will assist directors and trainers in guiding early childhood staff to fulfill learning standards—without compromising best practices. Written by respected consultants Gaye Gronlund and Marlyn James, it includes activities for reflecting on issues, such as how much teachers should direct each type of classroom activity, and helps staff developers assist teachers in strengthening their observation and documentation skills.

    A DVD features vignettes of the observation exercises and a CD-ROM offers PowerPointâ„¢ training aids and activity handouts.
