The High/Scope Curriculum is a developmentally based approach to early childhood education. The curriculum's "Extensions" newsletter, in which the articles in this collection first appeared, informs curriculum users about new development, relating to the High/Scope "open framework" curriculum. This collection divides the articles into seven chapters. Chapter 1, "Adult-Child Interaction," includes articles on conversation, praising, supporting children's thinking, helping children resolve disputes and conflicts, body language, speaking and listening strategies, punishment, dealing with weapons play, television and movies. Chapter 2, "Designing Routines for Active Learners," presents articles on work habits, group activities, transition, greeting time, and child-focused caregiving routines for infants and toddlers. Chapter 3, "Arranging Environments for Children," includes articles on open-air learning, art, reading and cross-cultural activities. Chapter 4, "The Family Connection," contains articles on parent-child relationships, home visits, role models, talking with parents about play and learning. Chapter 5, "Key Experiences in Child Development," presents articles that discuss ways to support pretend play, science, art, mathematics and concept learning. Chapter 6, "Special Events," contains articles examining activities related to events such as celebrations, holidays, and field trips.
