Written for early childhood education courses, specifically Early Childhood Guidance, Early Childhood Classroom Management or Behavior Guidance.
This innovative text provides 101 principles for teachers to learn and use as part of their repertoire in guiding young children’s behavior through positive, respectful and effective interactions. It discusses how to create positive, respectful relationships through strength-based strategies to ensure relational, social, and academic success for all children.
101 Principles for Positive Guidance with Young Children is an innovative manual for educators. It is a handy guide, a reference book, and a daily help for all educators working with children ages birth to age eight. Rather than focus on changing the behavior of children, this guiding text uniquely focuses first on exploring the beliefs, actions, words, responses and strategies of the teacher. By providing effective skills for teachers in behavior redirection and consistent social-emotional support, the authors explain that children will gain the competence necessary to relate successfully with their peers and others and learn to create healthy outcomes for themselves. Lively and accessible, the authors have written a truly user-friendly interactive manual with a seamless link between research and practice. The techniques presented are effective, practical, and field-tested, addressing every aspect of classroom guidance for young children. Furthermore, multicultural and cross-cultural contexts are fully-integrated, with particular efficacy for children at-risk, English language learners, and those working in diverse and inclusive classrooms. Relational and practical solutions for working with parents in the most constructive and caring manner are also addressed and will help educators learn to build bridges between home and school.
Versatile in depth and scope, the text can be utilized a myriad of ways from a traditional classroom textbook, a group professional development text, a group facilitator’s guide, or for individual study or enrichment. The text is reader-friendly for teachers, students, and practitioners of every level, and provides for personal reflection and immediate application, allowing teachers to gain confidence in connecting with and relating positively to children, transforming classrooms into caring, positive learning communities.
