Format: Paperback
As an early childhood educator, I sometimes feel like I am lost in nowadays test driven, textbook and worksheet based curriculums in NYC public schools. It's books like this that make me continue to believe in the importance and effectiveness of child centered teaching and give me the confidence to defend my practices, my students in my classrooms.
