Offering an alternative approach to standardization and data-driven mandates, this book puts children at the center of planning your curriculum. Rather than a prescriptive curriculum, by using The Thinking LensĀ® protocol, teachers can translate educational theories into concrete ideas for working with children and families. Learn to create a welcoming classroom culture, develop routines for self-regulation, and use Learning Stories to enhance experiences for the children in your care. This book has been updated to examine how to work with mandated curriculum, rating scales, and assessment tools, while practicing reflective teaching. Margie Carter holds a MA from Pacific Oaks College and has worked as a preschool, kindergarten, and primary school teacher, curriculum developer, High/Scope trainer, child care director, and college instructor. Deb Curtis holds a MA in human development from Pacific Oaks College and has worked as an infant/toddler caregiver, preschool and school age child care teacher, CDA trainer, Head Start education coordinator, college instructor, and assistant director of a child care program.

Rethinking Early Childhood Education is alive with the conviction that teaching young children involves values and vision. This anthology collects inspiring stories about social justice teaching with young children. Included is outstanding writing from childcare teachers, early-grade public school teachers, scholars, and parents. Early childhood is when we develop our core dispositions--the habits of thinking that shape how we live. This book shows how educators can nurture empathy, ecological consciousness, curiosity, collaboration, and activism in young children. It invites readers to rethink early childhood education, reminding them that it is inseparable from social justice and ecological education. An outstanding resource for childcare providers, early-grade teachers, and teacher education and staff development programs. Winner of a 2009 Skipping Stones Honor Award.

"This book is for anyone responsible for staff development or for those interested in training as the next step in their career path. These pages contain a bounty of thought-provoking ideas and strategies - ones that again and again have been useful in our twenty-some years of training teachers. But rather than listing step by step instructions for tried and true recipes, the book offers a fresh look and descriptions of the ingredients for effective teaching." - page xi.
