Item description for Learning Together with Young Children: A Curriculum Framework for Reflective Teachers by Deb Curtis & Margie Carter...
Many curriculum books treat teaching as something teachers do to or for children. Deb Curtis and Margie Carter, best-selling authors in the early learning field, believe teaching is a collaborative process in which teachers reexamine their own philosophies and practices while facilitating children’s learning.
Each chapter in this curriculum framework includes a conceptual overview followed by classroom stories and photographs to illustrate the concepts.
The book helps teachers create materials and a classroom culture reflective of their values: Teach through observation, reflection, inquiry, and action, and encourage children to represent their learning in multiple ways, including songs, stories, and drama.

Fantastic!! May 27, 2008
A wealth of practical suggestions matched with a much deeper philosophy that will change your teaching forever.
Absolutely beautiful Jan 6, 2008
If you loved Designs for Living and Learning, you are going to love this book as much or even more. Filled with beautifully written examples of curriculum emerging in ordinary circumstances. Each example is like a little gem, to be looked over, thought about, and looked over again. A MUST-read for anyone working with our youngest learners and discoverers; it will make you excited to go to work tomorrow morning.
A must read for any ECE teacher or instructor! Jan 4, 2008
Feeling stuck in the rut, burned out, disillusioned, under-challenged as a teacher of young children or teacher & mentor of other teachers -- well, this book sure is cheaper than therapy! And likely a darn sight more fun too! I could hardly put it down when it finally was delivered. I've had mine about a week and I'm nearly finished with it. What I have read is already covered it notes of all kinds -- ideas for my preschool classroom; ideas for working with my colleagues; ideas for working with parents; ideas for working with interns, observers and assistants in my classroom; ideas for working on and with yourself; ideas for teaching a college course with a colleague and friend that goes beyond the usual "how to" or "make your life easier" curriculum class but rather truly integrates theory & practice and turns teachers into thinkers and researchers. This book is full of inspirations, questions and reflections of all kinds! Run to your nearest bookstore now or let your fingers to the walking!
