Ratings:
Length: 314 pages4 hours

Summary

Conversations take place in every early childhood classroom—between teachers and children, and among children. Are You Listening? asks teachers to examine these conversations and their impact on children’s learning.

Often, teachers use conversations to impart information to children instead of really listening to children and allowing them to make their own decisions. Grounded in child-centered, relationship-based theory, this book covers topics such as how to create an environment that supports quality conversations, how to encourage conversations that support learning and development, and how to work with children with limited language capabilities.
