This detailed manual explores how to create a supportive setting for young children built around the principles of active learning. Teachers learn how to choose interest areas and materials for the learning environment and to establish a consistent daily routine that includes HighScope’s signature Plan-Do-Review® sequence and small- and large-groups times. The manual also guides teachers in implementing proven practices for adult-child interaction; family involvement; daily team planning; and observation-based, authentic child and program assessment.
