Kravitz, Deborah Jordan, Ed.
Focus on Pre-K and K, v10 n1-4 Fall 1997-Sum 1998
These four quarterly newsletter issues address various topics of interest to teachers of young children. Each issue focuses on a theme and includes an article on that theme, along with regular columns. The Fall 1997 issue focuses on kindergartners as inquirers and on using a negotiated curriculum in the early childhood setting. The vice president's column for this issue discusses father-daughter relationships. The topic of the Winter 1997 issue is "Creating a True Multicultural Setting." A sidebar explores coping with speech difficulties, while the vice president's column addresses redefining roles and expectations in teacher-student relationships. The Spring 1998 newsletter focuses on today's playground, discussing the new call for an end to traditional playgrounds in favor of ones designed to support children's development and play. A sidebar describes Georgia's voluntary prekindergarten program, and the vice president's column addresses listening to and supporting children's teachers. The Summer 1998 issue focuses on helping the overly aggressive child to develop prosocial behavior. Sidebars discuss the health hazards of environmental smoke, guidelines for well-behaved children, and tips for a fun and safe summer. The vice president's column discusses preservice, novice, experienced, and seasoned teachers learning together. All issues contain listings of new Web resources, and most describe print or video releases. (EV)
