Supporting Children, Families, and Yourself

This book shares effective teaching strategies that touch on all learning domains and across the preschool curriculum. In it, authors of highly relevant articles drawn from recent issues of NAEYC’s journal Young Children present research-based, developmentally appropriate practices for teaching young children and communicating with families. They help preschool teachers identify their own skills and supplement them with fresh approaches. Individual study guides, including questions and activities, invite reflection and build on the articles’ content. Readers can use the study guides on their own or with colleagues or fellow students. Teacher educators and staff development specialists will find them useful tools for facilitating learning in classes and workshops.
