The authors detail how to use education research and data to provide a rationale for change; how to promote professional learning that is genuinely collaborative and respectful; and how to employ developmentally appropriate teaching strategies that focus on the needs of minority and low-income children.Book Features:Case studies illustrating developmentally appropriate practices that can be applied across varied PreK-3 contexts.Key principles used by FirstSchool and its partners to reinvigorate the professionalism of teachers.<
