A Complete Guide to Teaching and Learning

Primary classrooms are just four walls until the teachers enter. Step by step, teachers build their classrooms: they build the environment, they build relationships with the children, they build partnerships with families, they build classroomcommunities, and most important, they build competent, successful learners. This acclaimed new book provides the framework and practical strategies primary teachers need to build great classrooms where teaching and learning are a shared responsibility. Building the Primary Classroom puts the best elements of classroom management and curriculum content together in once concise volume. This completely updated edition of Constructing Curriculum for the Primary Grades also features:
* the latest thinking on social problem solving, how children develop
socio-emotional skills, and resiliency * a completely revised chapter on assessment
* new chapters on technology and the arts
* updated content chapters, reflecting new information on standards and the latest research


"This is simply a fabulous book. It is clear, beautifully written, and attractive. More importantly, the content is spectacular. My one wish is that teachers throughout America would get to use it and that all children would have the opportunity to be in the kinds of classrooms the guide advances. Indeed, it is one of the most thoughtful treatments regarding developmental approaches to primary education." - Sharon L. Kagan, Senior Associate, The Bush Center in Child Development and Social Policy, Yale University; President, NAEYC.
