This book is the official manual for High/Scope curriculum. It outlines exactly how to set up a High/Scope classroom, from setting up the learning environment to guiding adult interactions. It gives you everything you need to know to be an amazing preschool teacher and it is backed by a mountain of research. You no longer have to reinvent the wheel. They have provided everything necessary to be successful in a classroom and for your students to be successful.

Posted by Reginald Williams on 9/26/2004
Flipping through the chapters in this book will inform you about the reason behind the popularity of High/Scope's early childhood curriculum: its efficient, paragonic planning. Planning makes a teacher...period. This curriculum teaches you to plan everything from the room arrangement to the assessment scheduling. Active learning incorporates itself into all aspects. The key experiences align almost like contact paper with most state-level educational standards for this age group. Please try it.
