Continue shopping

Description:

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, nonviolent 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.

From Pictures to Words: Understanding the Foundations of Literacy (DVD)

Description:

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.
