Brickman, Nancy Altman, Ed.
The High/Scope Curriculum is a developmentally based approach to early childhood education. This 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 eight chapters. Chapter 1, "Supportive Adult-Child Interaction," includes articles on encouraging group problem solving, rules and limits, persona dolls as discussion starters, and superhero play. Chapter 2, "Materials and Environments for Active Learners," considers computer use, materials for infants and toddlers, and gardening. Chapter 3, "Learning and Exploring throughout the Daily Routine," presents articles on arrivals and departures for infants and toddlers, reading throughout routines, small group interaction strategies, and pretend play. Chapter 4, "Key Experiences in the Preschool Classroom," contains articles on reading, message boards, promoting outdoor experiences, children's art, dramatic arts, and movement. Chapter 5, "Meeting the Needs of All Children," presents articles on supporting children's home language, classroom adaptations for children with special needs, and High/Scope strategies for specific disabilities. Chapter 6, "Active Learning in the Elementary Grades," focuses on hands-on materials, children's interests, drama, art, and parent-teacher conferences. Chapter 7, "Collaborating with Parents," includes articles on parent involvement opportunities, parent conferences, and involving parents in curriculum planning. Chapter 8, "Team Planning, Assessment, and Staff Development," contains articles on planning around children's interests, assessing program quality through classroom observations, and mentoring.
