Learning Together with Young Children: A Curriculum Framework for Reflective Teachers

Many curriculum books treat teaching as something you do to or for children. Deb Curtis and Margie Carter believe that teaching is a collaborative process in which you reexamine your philosophy and practices while facilitating children’s learning. Each chapter in this curriculum framework includes a conceptual overview followed by classroom stories and photos to illustrate the concepts. You will learn to create materials and a classroom culture that reflects your values; teach through observation, reflection, inquiry and action; and encourage children to represent their learning in multiple ways, including songs, stories, drama and art.
