    By Paula Jorde Bloom

It will help you assess your unique leadership style; understand the values and beliefs that shape leadership behavior; increase interpersonal understanding among staff; increase shared commitment to the center's goals; make action plans that get implemented; solve organizational issues in a collegial and non-confrontational way; and plan for your successor.

    By Carol Copple & Sue Bredekamp, With Janet Gonzalez-Mena

    Developmentally appropriate practice is so fundamental to the early childhood field that all new educators need a sound grasp from the very start. While DAP's basic concepts aren't difficult or arcane, they can be understood wrongly or incompletely—and often are! This engaging little book describes the core concepts and makes them meaningful to everyday practice for teachers of infants and toddlers. College instructors, directors, and trainers will find this an invaluable tool for introducing learners to the foundation of the early childhood field.

This accessible book by Judith Schickedanz shows teachers how to maximize the scope and power of their instruction through integration—across content domains and across learning contexts.

    From the very beginning of a child's life, effective listening includes becoming aware, focusing, selecting cues from the environment, and filtering out distractions. And in the preschool years, children are ready to learn a lot more about becoming good listeners. Yet very few teachers have had specific preparation for actually teaching children how to listen.

    By Jennifer Birckmayer, Anne Stonehouse, & Anne Kennedy

    The ability to use language (speak, read, write) is not something that children suddenly or automatically develop. It is rather a culmination of experiences with language that begin at birth. Sharing stories (oral storytelling, books) and “story experiences” (conversations, songs, poems, rhymes) with infants and toddlers is critical to building their emergent literacy skills. At the same time, it expands their experience and understanding of the world and also prompts positive interactions with adults and other children, fostering social development.

    This guide offers small-group learning experiences that build on children's natural curiosity and interests. Early childhood teachers will find many ideas for new materials and experiences in five curriculum content areas: language and literacy, mathematics, science and technology, the arts, and physical development and health. For each small group, the book suggests how teachers can provide useful scaffolding for children at three different levels of learning and development. From HighScope Press.
