    By Dan Gartrell

    In an engaging, reader-friendly style, the author describes developmentally appropriate guidance in the encouraging classroom. With this approach, teachers think beyond the kind of conventional classroom discipline that aims merely to keep children in line—and often fails even to do that! Gartrell shows teachers how to help children develop lifelong skills such as mutual acceptance and cooperation, creative and peaceful problem-solving strategies, and acceptable ways to express difficult emotions. Includes a special chapter on guidance with boys. Copublished with Cengage.

    This collection of essays argues that it matters that children gain, through teacher guidance, the social-emotional skills they need to succeed in and participate civilly in modern life. Part One establishes historical roots for the type of education that prepares children for this participation. Part Two makes the case that three best practices in early childhood education offer the approach to education for democracy that society needs. Part Three provides anecdotes and case studies to illustrate how guidance fosters the development of the five democratic life skills.
