Make Early Learning Standards Come Alive: Connecting Your Practice and Curriculum to State Guidelines
Gronlund, Gaye
Redleaf Press
"Make Early Learning Standards Come Alive" provides help, support, and explanations of how to make early learning standards come alive in classrooms and programs. Easy-to-read charts show how different states define standards in each of the major content areas and how these standards can be addressed in the classroom. The book discusses how to: (1) Implement standards in ways that are developmentally appropriate and beneficial for children; (2) Develop reasonable and efficient ways to assess children's progress toward the standards; (3) Plan curriculum with specific learning standards in mind in each of the seven major content areas -- communication and literacy, math, science, social studies, social/emotional development, physical development and health, and creative arts; and (4) Be accountable while offering real alternatives to inappropriate testing and unreasonable expectations for outcomes.
