This book will help you keep track of your teaching plans, whether you use an emergent, project-based approach or a variety of curriculum resources. Focused Early Learning provides a simple and innovative framework for organizing teaching plans into a realistic, classroom-based format that focuses on the unique needs of each child.

Field-tested with teachers across the country, this easy and adaptable planning tool covers many facets of early childhood education. It helps you develop a rich classroom environment with specified learning areas; build relationships with children and families; integrate academic learning; respond to children's interests; and coordinate planning with assessment processes.

Gaye Gronlund, an experienced teacher of young children as well as a noted consultant, offers teachers a 'how-to' book solidly grounded in developmentally appropriate practice. Its strategies for planning for children's learning are systematically organized to make the teaching task more manageable.

"Acknowledging teachers as decision-makers, the author offers them a framework for organizing their thinking about children's learning in a rich classroom environment and for building respectful, caring relationships among adults and children in early childhood programs. Teachers are invited to observe what happens, reflect on its quality, and decide what to do next.
