Description


Empowering students to be active thinkers and learners

Primary students enter the classroom as capable thinkers with unique experiences, skills, and ideas about the world. Using this new collection of articles, educators can build on that preexisting knowledge to take teaching and learning to the next level.

This valuable resource will help you:

  • Create environments that boost learning and build social relationships among students
  • Engage young learners in interpreting complex literature and thinking deeply and meaningfully about math and science
  • Support culturally and linguistically diverse children
  • Foster strong ties with families
Using the ideas presented here as a foundation, educators can make the most of their time with students by using each interaction as a powerful opportunity to instill confidence, competence, and a love of learning.

This volume is part of NAEYC's best-selling Spotlight series―great resources for the college classroom and for staff development.
