Item #: 222
# of Pages:79
Have you tried involving children in class meetings for working out the conflicts and problems that arise? It's a great way to build classroom community and promote children's problem-solving skills. The authors' guidance and practical strategies are effective with children in preschool through the early grades. Great for bilingual classrooms too!
"In this clearly written little book, Emily Vance and Patricia Jimenez Weaver give good guidance about how to plan and carry out class meetings. Class meetings can give children the confidence to speak up and the respect for others that together make cooperation and problem solving possible. In this way, class meetings impart democratic values and practices. No skills children learn these days are more important."
