The Tide Is High, but We Can Hold On: One Kindergarten Teacher's Thoughts on the Rising Tide of Academic Expectations
DeVault, Laurie
Young Children, v58 n6 p90-93 Nov 2003
DeVault shares strategies, enlivened with examples and anecdotes, for dealing with pressures for academic kindergarten. For example, teachers can embrace the positive elements in new methodologies; document children's meaningful activities and progress using photographs, videos, and slide shows to share with parents and administrators; share articles and information on appropriate practices; advocate strongly but selectively for appropriate practices.
