Item #: 239
# of Pages:120
A day in a preschool classroom can be hectic, and with so many learning goals to be met, it’s no surprise that teachers sometimes wonder how they will get it all done. 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.
With a focus on language, literacy, and mathematics, Schickedanz introduces strategies that will bolster instruction in all subjects. Engaging vignettes demonstrate effective integration throughout the schedule, including during story time, center time, and large and small group sessions. She writes that integration can "help us better manage our time and make instruction more powerful—and learning more meaningful—for children." This wonderful book shows you how to do just that.
"An outstanding resource for early childhood educators! Judith Schickedanz addresses an important and complex instructional challenge in ways that are highly accessible, for inexperienced and longtime teachers alike. Filled with vivid examples of highly effective teaching, this book is an excellent tool for professional development."
