Overview

Addressing ages 3 to 8 years, A GUIDANCE APPROACH FOR THE ENCOURAGING CLASSROOM, 6th Edition, functions as a primary reference for professionals or as a resource for classes that address group management, the learning environment, child guidance, child behavior, challenging behavior, conflict management, and peace education topics. Part 1 explores the foundation of guidance in early childhood education. Part 2 focuses on building and organizing an encouraging classroom, and discusses such topics as daily schedules, routines, use of thematic instruction, and the importance of working with parents. Part 3 addresses problem solving and challenging behavior, including a practical illustration of how to use and teach conflict management and information about the "five-finger-formula." Highlights of the new edition include standards and video integration, expanded coverage of diversity, and information on current brain research. Throughout, this experience-based resource includes real-life anecdotes that allow professionals to make the shift from conventional classroom to developmentally appropriate guidance.
