    By Jennifer Birckmayer, Anne Stonehouse, Anne Kennedy

    The ability to use language (speak, read, write) is not something that children suddenly or automatically develop. It is rather a culmination of experiences with language that begin at birth. Sharing stories (oral storytelling, books) and “story experiences” (conversations, songs, poems, rhymes) with infants and toddlers is critical to building their emergent literacy skills. At the same time, it expands their experience and understanding of the world and also prompts positive interactions with adults and other children, fostering social development.

    By Carol Anne Wien

    How is a compelling, exemplary curriculum created in schools in spite of the pressures to implement a standardized one? In this book, teachers and principals share their experiences with emergent curriculum, and with the creative practices they've developed in urban classrooms kindergarten to third grade. We learn what they were trying to do, how they began the process, the challenges they face, the decisions they made, and what happened to the children.

    By Marilou Hyson

    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. Copublished with Teachers College Press.
