Why? Because Christine and Kristi provide a very practical, research based rethinking of classroom practices from the environment to socio-emotional needs to the curriculum. Within these pages, they synthesize the research and best practice into doable chunks. And then they provide space in the margins to jot notes and think along with the authors as you reflect on your own practices.
The layout, the pictures from classrooms, and the interviews with teachers are all like icing and sprinkles on top of a decadently double chocolate cupcake. This text is perfect for a preservice class or a book study in an elementary!
