Guidance in the Developmentally Appropriate Classroom has the distinction of being selected as a 2003 comprehensive member benefit by the NAEYC, an honor for any author in the field. It is a collection of well-received writings on how to use guidance in early childhood classrooms. The material teaches strategies for developing an encouraging classroom and for working with children, particularly boys, who have moderate and serious conflicts. It also presents non-punitive approaches to classroom management. Those who will find the most value in this compilation of material on guidance are practitioners in the field, including Head Start teachers, childcare teachers and preschool and primary grade teachers and assistants. Guidance in the Developmentally Appropriate Classroom also will be popular in training programs for staff pursuing Child Developmental Associate credentials and other early childcare training certificates.
