Trust as a Teaching Skill
Leon-Weil, Anica; Hewitt, Carol
Young Children, v63 n5 p24-26 Sep 2008
Should I stop the conflict or narrate it? Do I redirect or reassure? Two infant/toddler teachers explain how they use trust as a teaching tool, "teaching" less and involving the toddlers in their classroom in the decisions that affect them. They took to heart the philosophy of Magda Gerber, who urged parents to "observe more, do less." The author passes along suggestions for making this philosophy work in the classroom.
