# of Pages:163
Children’s “approaches to learning”—interest, joy, persistence, flexibility, self-regulation, engagement, and motivation to learn—make up a key dimension of school readiness. Research shows that positive approaches to learning improve social-emotional and academic outcomes. With images of practice in diverse settings, Hyson illustrates the possibility of building greater enthusiasm and engagement through relationships, curriculum, teaching, assessment strategies, and family communication.
