Overview

Standards are everywhere in early childhood education, from the number of children recommended for each teacher in a room to defining what young children should be learning. Make Early Learning Standards Come Alive provides practical help, support, and clear explanations on how to make early learning standards relevant and useful in classrooms and programs. Easy-to-read charts show the common language for standards, cross-referenced across twenty-four states, and how each particular standard correlates with current best practices. This book shows how to: implement standards in ways that are developmentally appropriate and beneficial for children; figure out reasonable and efficient ways to assess children's progress toward the standards; plan curriculum with learning standards in mind in each of seven major content areas-communication and literacy, math, science, social studies, social/emotional development, physical development and health, and creative arts; be accountable while offering real alternatives to inappropriate testing and unreasonable expectations for outcomes.
