|What could better enhance your classroom
teaching success than strong partnership with
parents that is rooted in their children's
growth, development, and learning.
The Parent's Handbook of Development is
the classroom tool you need to accomplish
these strong partnerships. The book actually
doubles as a parent-teacher handbook since
its sole purpose is to facilitate positive,
natural, meaningful, and authentic
conversations between teachers and parents.
Each time you have either formal or informal
conferences, you will be able to celebrate
together, one aspect of the child's
development from across the six Domains:
Affective, Social, Creative, Cognitive,
Language, or Physical.
During a parent-teacher conference, The
Parent's Handbook of Development will help
parents and teachers learn about, share and
commit to focus on the child's development
by choosing one of 96 Target Objectives
across the six domains of Affective, Social,
Creative, Cognitive, Language, and Physical
Teachers might also choose one Target
Objective to focus on in their classroom each
week, encouraging children to journal or
write stories about their own "giftedness".
For Example the children might write about
the Affective Domain: Target Objective -
Perseverance (Click here for excerpt) or the
Creative Domain: Target Objective =
Curiosity (Click here for excerpt).
School administrators might choose one
Target Objective for the week and the entire
school could focus on it. For Example: Social
Domain: Target Objective - Negotiating
(Click her for excerpt).
