Overview

The great privelege of teaching is that you, the teacher, learn something new from the kids every day. "In fact," writes author Dan Gartrell, "the freshness of life lessons that young children teach keeps many teachers rejuvenated, and committed to the field." You can have years of experience, and you can own all of the latest textbooks. But you still need to keep your eyes and ears tuned to the greatest teachers of all‹the children in your classroom.

Written for present and future early childhood teachers by present and future early childhood teachers, What the Kids Said Today looks directly and openly at how teachers and young children talk with each other in the classroom. A good teacher, Gartrell states, uses these conversations to build what he calls the encouraging classroom, a community where mutual acceptance is the priority and where children can learn the skills they¹ll need in larger communities in the future. Skills that include acceptance and cooperation, creative and peaceful problem-solving, and ways to express emotions that are acceptable to all.

The author collected 160 stories from more than 60 adults at Head Starts, child care centers, family child care homes, and kindergarten classrooms ‹ including anecdotes from beginning student teachers and from experienced directors. Each story includes an account of a teacher¹s conversation with children, as well as reflections on how each conversation can help build the encouraging classroom. Discussion questions at the end of each chapter help foster further exploration of what kids say to their teacher and what a teacher says to them.

    a must read for teachers

    I must say this is an excellent book. I've had Dan for quite a few classes at Bemidji State University and he's a wonderful man and knows his stuff about children. I highly respect him and I highly recomend this book!
