More and more teachers of young children are being asked to develop their curriculum according to standards. This essential resource will guide educators as they grapple with a plethora of issues, questions, and practices surrounding the use of standards in the early childhood classroom. Carol Seefeldt, well-known educator and bestselling author, offers teachers an overview of the standards movement; describes the status of standards in early education; presents the issues around the design and selection of standards; and provides practical strategies for effectively implementing standards with young children (preschool through the early primary grades). This book provides both the background knowledge and a working understanding of standards to help teachers: successfully judge and select standards; design appropriate ways of using and working with standards; and develop appropriate assessment strategies. Illustrated with children's work, this "how-to" guide: provides practical illustrations of how standards can be used to benefit early childhood classrooms, including many sample activities; demonstrates how to work with standards in the separate subject areas of the sciences, arts, language and literacy, mathematics, and social studies; offers ideas for including all children, such as those with special needs and those just learning English; and describes a project, Children Study Their Play Yard, illustrating how thematic, standards-based, problem-solving learning can be integrated into the total curriculum.

"Supporting Boys' Learning is a wonderful addition to any teacher's library. It supplies a good balance of data, analysis, and plenty of practical tips to help get the best out of the boys in the classroom. I would encourage principals to buy a copy and leave it in the teachers' lounge. It is a great read for teachers who want to get the best out of all their children."---Peg Tyre, journalist and author of The Trouble with Boys Supporting Boys' Learning will help teachers develop knowledge and strategies for teaching boys in ways that build on their strengths, respect their individual development levels, and adhere to principles of child development. There is a growing body of research that has raised concerns about boys' vulnerability in terms of social-emotional development, referral to special education, and academic pressures in school, with African-American and Latino boys most at risk. Responding to these concerns, this user-friendly guide provides strategies for improving teaching practice. The text is based on the work of a group of teacher educators and includes examples from the field, reflections on practice, classroom strategies, and key resources. The strategies and recommendations for practice documented here have all been field tested by pre-service teachers under the supervision of the contributors to this book.

Bringing Reggio Emilia Home is the first book to integrate the experiences of one American teacher on a year-long internship in the preschools of Reggio, with a four-year adaptation effort in one American school. The lively text includes many “mini-stories” of preschool and kindergarten-age children, teachers, and parents who embark on journeys of learning together. These journeys take shape in language, in drawings, in tempera paint and clay, in outdoor excursions, and in the imaginations of both the children and adults. This informative and accessible work features photographs of the children (both in Italy and the United States) and samples of the children’s work, including some in full color. During the past 10 years there has been a tremendous interest among early childhood educators and parents in the innovative approaches to teaching pioneered in the preschools of Reggio Emilia, Italy. This book is a must read for anyone interested in the Reggio Approach! Teachers, especially those in early childhood, teacher educators, policymakers, administrators, and parents will find it invaluable. Selected topics: The Fundamentals of the Reggio Approach • The Pleasure and Power of Playing with Materials • Plants in Relationships • Children and Spoken Language • Transforming Space, Time, and Relations • Turning the Preschool Classroom into a Greenhouse • Taking the Plant Project to Kindergarten “Between 1989 and 1993, just three educators from the United States were granted permission to spend a year as interns in the schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy. Louise Cadwell was one of them.” —From the Foreword by Lella Gandini

The most pressing challenge in early childhood education today is to find a way to meet the standards within a developmentally appropriate approach. In this book, two active early childhood educators provide teachers with resources to bring content alive in the daily, action-based pre-K and Kindergarten classrooms, and ways to document it. The book includes lists of key content ideas--coordinated with learning standards in science, mathematics, social studies, and the communication arts--to guide teacher observations of, and interactions with, young children. Chapters focus on ways to extend children's emerging use of content in the block, manipulative, sand and water, drama, expressive arts, and literacy centers, and link to the development of themes. Book features include: lists of key ideas in the content areas; examples of conversations that nurture children's emerging content understandings; vignettes from the field illustrating teachers' experiences of embedding content into center activities, along with photographs; and sample forms for documenting children's learning as they meet the standards in a variety of contexts.
