How do preschoolers learn and develop? What are the best ways to support learning in the early years? This revised edition of The Intentional Teacher guides teachers to balance both child-guided and adult-guided learning experiences that respond to children’s interests and focus on what they need to learn to be successful in school and life.

This edition includes

  • New chapters on science, social studies, and approaches to learning
  • Updated, expanded information on social and emotional development, physical development and health, language and literacy, math, and the creative arts
  • Practical teaching strategies that are illustrated with classroom-based anecdotes

Intentional teaching does not happen by chance. This book will help teachers apply their knowledge of children and of content to make thoughtful, intentional use of both child-guided and adult-guided experiences. Copublished with HighScope Press.

"Deeply respectful of the role that teachers play in children’s lives, Epstein brings to life a sophisticated approach to teaching that is both committed to child development principles and sensitive to the demands of educational content. This book is a must-read for educators, parents, advocates, and policy makers."

— Travis Wright, Assistant Professor, Early Childhood Education, University of Wisconsin-Madison
