More than Happy-Dappy
April 3, 2019
I could not, at any age, be content to take my place by the fireside and simply look on. Life was meant to be lived. Curiosity must be kept alive.
-Eleanor Roosevelt

“A community that learns is in continual construction of collective understanding born of multiple perspectives coming together,” write Ann Pelo and Margie Carter, in their popular bestseller, From Teaching to Thinking. “This isn’t easy!” they explain. “The give-and-take of authentic exchange does not mean happy-dappy, easy-as-pie congeniality. Authentic relationships ask that we offer ourselves to each other; that we consider difficult and complex circumstances together; that we argue, we make mistakes, we disagree. We join together with comrades and collaborators, yes, and also with people quite different than ourselves.”

Want to hear Ann Pelo and Margie Carter discuss their thinking about teaching? Join us on April 17th for a FREE Early Childhood Investigations webinar. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to hear from two influential authors and master practitioners in early education today. To register for this webinar, click here.

Naturally, children are eager for connective relationships, they are curious, they are thinkers. This foundational text is a pedagogical companion for educators that strengthens their own development as thinkers, researchers, innovators, and constructors of knowledge so that they can pass on this way of being to the children in their care.
