Learning Together With Young Children A Curriculum Framework for Reflective Teachers (Paperback)
|Author: Deb/ Carter Curtis|
|Provides early childhood teachers a framework for collaborating with children to create a dynamic, emergent curriculum.|
From the Publisher:
Many curriculum books treat teaching as something teachers 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 teachers reexamine their own philosophies and practices while facilitating children’s learning.
Each chapter in this curriculum framework includes a conceptual overview followed by classroom stories and photographs to illustrate the concepts.
The book helps teachers create materials and a classroom culture reflective of their values: Teach through observation, reflection, inquiry, and action, and encourage children to represent their learning in multiple ways, including songs, stories, and drama.
