This book demonstrates how educators can use childrenÂ’s work to communicate what is being learned in early childhood and elementary school classrooms. Extending the work begun in Windows on Learning: Documenting Young ChildrenÂ’s Work, this new book combines Judy HelmÂ’s experience with documentation and Amanda HelmÂ’s expertise in marketing and public relations to provide the tools educators need to present powerful evidence other than test scores that children are learning. Part I explains the need for school personnel to communicate more effectively and examines how professional strategies can make a difference. Part II presents seven strategies for implementing more effective professional communication. Part III is a handbook of resources on communication techniques.

Book Features:
* Strategies from the communication field to help teachers and administrators process, display, publish, and share documentation of childrenÂ’s work with parents and other members of the community.
* Demonstrations of how the strategies and methods are used in real classrooms and schools—including interviews with teachers, administrators, and parents; examples of children’s work; photographs; and a full-color insert.
* Examples of communication pieces used by schools and childcare centers to disseminate information about what children are learning.
