Completely updated, this popular guide provides teachers with a proven method for documenting (collecting, analyzing, and displaying) young children’s work. Written by teachers for teachers, it also shows principals, curriculum coordinators, and directors of early intervention programs how to develop children’s portfolios to share with parents or to use for assessment and other accountability purposes. “This lively, informative book poses a remarkable challenge to teachers—to grow themselves while growing young children. Being creatively accountable is hard work and the stories told here describe both the work, how it’s done, and its joyful rewards for teachers and children.” —Elizabeth Jones, Pacific Oaks College “This book provides a set of windows on children’s lives and how teachers can enter into those lives and enrich them through high-quality teaching. The authors have created an inspiring volume, a challenging set of ideas, and an invaluable resource for early childhood educators.” —Samuel J. Meisels, University of Michigan “[A] thoughtful, up-to-date guide to assessing and documenting children’s work. . . . The authors give clear, practical advice on how to collect, analyze, and display children’s work in meaningful ways.” —Scholastic Early Childhood Today (on first edition) “Many teachers find it frustrating to hear the rich and exciting learning experiences they provide described as ‘nothing.’ Windows on Learning skillfully addresses the challenge faced by early childhood educators wishing to share classroom experiences with parents, administrators, and peers. The authors offer a timely and fresh approach to documenting children’s learning and work.” —Childhood Education (on first edition)

DraftSight is a free, two-dimensional Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) program that can create, edit and view DWG files. This book is focused on teaching you to use DraftSight and will get you started using the software right from the start. What sets this text apart from others is its ability to provide you with greater choices in the quest for learning CAD software. Every effort has been made to provide an environment which covers the two main uses of the software: Mechanical and Architectural drafting. Although diverse, these fields are related enough such that beginning CAD skills learned in one area can be adapted to the other. Exercises and activities found in this text are typically grouped as either Mechanical or Architectural. You may decide which path to take, or do both. Skills learned in these areas are transferable to subsets of these groups as well (e.g., electrical, civil, structural, textile design, interior design, and landscape design). --taken from back cover
