Using a topical approach to cover development from early childhood through adolescence, this book provides future teachers with authentic, research-based strategies and guidelines for their classrooms. The authors apply child development concepts to topics of high interest and relevance to teachers, including classroom discipline, constructivism, social-emotional development and well-being, and many others. A strong emphasis on individual and group diversity among children is reflected throughout. Field observation assignments help students to apply the science to children's experiences in the classroom. Case studies and real-world vignettes from authentic classroom situations further bridge the distance between research and the classroom. By linking theory, research, and practice -- and emphasizing application -- the book helps to equip future teachers with the tools to create an environment that promotes optimal development in children.

Teacher and author Vivian Paley is highly regarded by parents, educators, and other professionals for her original insights into such seemingly everyday issues as play, story, gender, and how young children think. In The Classrooms All Young Children Need, Patricia M. Cooper takes a synoptic view of Paley’s many books and articles, charting the evolution of Paley’s thinking while revealing the seminal characteristics of her teaching philosophy. This careful analysis leads Cooper to identify a pedagogical model organized around two complementary principles: a curriculum that promotes play and imagination, and the idea of classrooms as fair places where young children of every color, ability, and disposition are welcome. With timely attention paid to debates about the reduction in time for play in the early childhood classroom, the role of race in education, and No Child Left Behind, The Classrooms All Young Children Need will be embraced by anyone tasked with teaching our youngest pupils.

This classic bestseller, now updated for today's diverse teaching force and student populations, explores the benefits of sociomoral practices in the classroom. The authors draw on recent research to show how these approaches work with children ages 2–8. They focus on how to establish and maintain a classroom environment that fosters children's intellectual, social, moral, emotional, and personality development. Extending the work of Jean Piaget, the authors advocate for a cooperative approach that contrasts with the coercion and unnecessary control that can be seen in many classrooms serving young children. Practical chapters demonstrate how the constructivist approach can be embedded in a school program by focusing on specific classroom situations and activities, such as resolving conflict, group time, rule making, decision making and voting, social and moral discussions, cooperative alternatives to discipline, and activity time.

Designed to show teachers how to create environments that will encourage literate talk, not discourage it, this book discusses ways to organize classrooms that will support the sharing of books in the same way that book-loving families share books. The book builds on the interwoven nature of language, suggesting that by talking about books, children deepen their reading comprehension; by telling and listening to stories, they develop skills in communication and ideas for writing; and by dramatizing favorite scenes, they make personal connections to literature that spark continued reading and exploration. After an introduction by Bernice E. Cullinan, chapters in the book are: (1) "Enriching Oral Language with Literature" (Sheila M. Fitzgerald); (2) "Storytelling" (Bob Barton); (3)"Creative Drama and Language Arts" (Sam Leaton Sebesta); (4) "'It's Really Special Because You Get to Think': Talking about Literature" (Julie E. Wollman-Bonilla); and (5) "Literature Circles: Hearing Children's Voices" (Kathy G. Short and Charlene Klassen). A citation index, a children's book author index, and a children's book title index are attached. (RS)

The instructional framework presented in this book is intended to help teachers provide all young children, but especially English-language learners, with rich, meaningful, and interactive literacy instruction. Referred to as LEALE, the instruction is grounded in the traditional Language Experience Approach (LEA). It has been expanded to encompass principles and practices of research-based early literacy instruction as understood and presented in current professional literature. The approach is presented in an attractive, easily understood style that invites both beginning and experienced teachers to engage their students in literacy. The LEALE instructional framework presented here grew out of the many happy hours that the author spent working with children and their teachers over the years. Included are pictures and examples of classroom materials (chart stories and journals) from children in Belize, Central America, and children in urban centres in Alberta, Canada.
