A teacher interacts with the children all day long, building the warm and responsive relationships in which young children learn best. But interactions in which teachers intentionally promote learning can be few and far between, with a "Powerful Interaction" only lasting a few minutes. In those few minutes, however, the teacher tunes out any distractions, tunes into the child, and then presents a learning experience tailored to that child at that moment. This book will guide you through the three steps of a "Powerful Interaction" in a series of self-guided lessons enlivened with tips, hints, invitations to reflect, and vignettes.
