Many curriculum books treat teaching as something teachers do "to" or "for" children. Deb Curtis and Margie Carter, best-selling authors in the early learning field, believe teaching is a collaborative process in which teachers reexamine their own philosophies and practices while facilitating children's learning.Each chapter in this curriculum framework includes a conceptual overview followed by classroom stories and photographs to illustrate the concepts.The book helps teachers create materials and a classroom culture reflective of their values: Teach through observation, reflection, inquiry, and action, and encourage children to represent their learning in multiple ways, including songs, stories, and drama.
