THE LEARNING CHILD SERIES (DVD)

 

As seen on public television, this four-program set has been created to assist educators and parents in guiding children to become motivated, thoughtful and active learners.  Including a companion guide with each program, the series examines such habits of mind as personal curiosity, problem solving, ?as-if? thinking and acceptance of different points of view.  While each program explores a different topic ? literacy, play, ethics and the environment ? all encourage a lifelong interest in learning itself.

 

The Learning Child Series is produced by Jonathan Diamond Associates, Inc. in association with the Child Development Institute at Sarah Lawrence College.

 

 

WHEN LEARNING COMES NATURALLY:  Exploring Nature?s Classroom (DVD) (item#8036)

 

How can children be encouraged to make a lasting connection to nature?  This program profiles the efforts of educators and parents to introduce children to the natural world and to involve them ? through outdoor play, class activities and their own creative work ? in a process of outdoor discovery.  Beyond the immediate benefits to child development that come with exploration and improvisational learning, the program documents how meaningful time spent outdoors can cultivate in children a permanent caring for nature ? a crucial ethic of environmental responsibility.

 

This documentary is one of four in The Learning Child Series, produced by Jonathan Diamond Associates, Inc. in association with the Child Development Institute at Sarah Lawrence College.  Each program includes a companion guide.

 

 

 

FROM PICTURES TO WORDS:  Understanding The Foundations of Literacy (DVD) (item #8037)

 

How do children come to literacy?  This documentary observes that encouraging young children to make pictures ? to invent their own graphic representations ? sets the literacy process in motion.  As children experiment with crayons, markers and pencils, they begin to realize that these marks can stand for the sounds of language.  That learning path leads from telling stories with pictures to telling stories with words.  And as some very enthusiastic young students demonstrate, these early interests can evolve into a passion for reading and writing. 

 

This documentary is one of four in The Learning Child Series, produced by Jonathan Diamond Associates, Inc. in association with the Child Development Institute at Sarah Lawrence College.  Each program includes a companion guide.

 

 

 

 

VALUES GO TO SCHOOL:  Exploring Ethics with Children (DVD) (item #8038)

 

This program observes that ethical issues are inseparable from the life of the classroom and the school.  Educators incorporate into classroom practice such concepts as racial tolerance, non-violent conflict-resolution and respect for diversity through role-play, targeted readings and ? especially ? discussion.  Values Go to School profiles ways to help children actively develop their own sense of ethics ? guiding them to become the engaged, caring and confident people they are meant to be.

 

This documentary is one of four in The Learning Child Series, produced by Jonathan Diamond Associates, Inc. in association with the Child Development Institute at Sarah Lawrence College.  Each program includes a companion guide.

 

 

 

 

WHEN A CHILD PRETENDS:  Understanding Pretend Play (DVD) (item # 8039)

 

For its lasting benefit to children, ?play? goes well beyond the fun involved.  This program observes young children in play sequences that require planning, negotiating, collaborating, taking roles and developing narratives.  In these sequences, children explore language and the imaginative ?as if? thinking that leads to advanced intellectual functioning.  When a Child Pretends demonstrates that pretend play is an essential arena for the child?s intellectual, social, emotional and imaginative development.

 

This documentary is one of four in The Learning Child Series, produced by Jonathan Diamond Associates, Inc. in association with the Child Development Institute at Sarah Lawrence College.  Each program includes a companion guide.
