Coverage presents ways to create a caring classroom - both in physical environment and curriculum, to work with other adults in a child's life, and to implement peer mediation. Throughout, the material stresses the need to understand all children in light of applicable theory and current qbest practiceq in culturally responsive and inclusive classrooms. For current and prospective teachers, guidance counselors, and daycare providers.Dream Catcher Corner: In a quiet corner of the room, children may sit and spend time sharing their thoughts with a dream ...
