Is it possible to create classrooms that support both rigorous learning and caring attitudes? And if so, how can you promote this atmosphere in your own class, from the first day of school and on throughout the year?Building caring classroom communities take considerable effort on the part of teachers and students.

But hundreds of elementary teachers across the United States have found it worth the effort, as they worked with the Child Development Project staff during more than fifteen years to develop practical ways to bring this concept to life in their classrooms. Dalton and Watson visited many of these classrooms, and their observations are recorded here through real classroom vignettes and conversations with fifteen experienced teachers.

In a lively, engaging, and practical style, each component in the package illustrates four keys to building classroom communities that promote caring and learning:-- Fostering caring relationships-- Teaching humane values-- Honoring intrinsic motivation-- Learning for understandingTo be used with the videos and book to structure a series of in-school staff meetings to discuss, implement, and reflect on the development of caring communities of learners.
