    Excellent resource

    This book is an excellent resource for teachers and other professionals that work with children. The book gives accurate and clear discriptions of "yardsticks" or milestones to look for in child development. It is extremely helpful to the new teacher to discern what the "average" student can usually accomplish at different stages of development.

    The book is clearly sectioned into different age groups. This is helpful and makes the text a useful and easy reference. It is a good resource to keep in the classroom as well as a must have if changing grade levels. Besides being a professional resource, I found it a helpful reference for my own children as they developed and progressed in the classroom.

    I prefer Sugar's "The Silent Crisis Destroying America's Brightest Minds"

    I prefer Sugar's "The Silent Crisis Destroying America's Brightest Minds"

    Sugar's 'The Silent Crisis Destroying America's Brightest Minds" is a book that is all about educational reality, the facts on the ground, not vacuous educational theories.

    Sugar pioneered the SMARTGRADES school notebooks that contain the new learning technology, ACANDY Processing Tools, that empower students for academic success. She transformed my kids into Grade A students, so I speak from experience, not hypothetical theory.
