How Observation Can Transform Your Teaching

The Art of Awareness, Second Edition

Learning to closely observe children requires commitment to systematic study and ongoing practice. With activities, experiences, and stories, this book provides that opportunity. Nine observation study sessions help educators of young children discover the many ways that being observant can enhance their teaching. Updates to this second edition reflect current issues in early childhood education, including learning standards, assessment, and technology. Deb Curtis and Margie Carter are popular presenters at early childhood conferences, professional development speakers, and on-site consultants. They have written several books together, including Learning Together with Young Children and Designs for Living and Learning.

The Poetry of Everyday Life

Storytelling and the Art of Awareness

The Poetry of Everyday Life

This is a book of encounters. Part memoir, part essay, and partly a guide to maximizing your capacity for fulfillment and expression, The Poetry of Everyday Life taps into the artistic side of what we often take for granted: the stories we tell, the people we love, the metaphors used by scientists, even our sex lives. A folklorist, writer, and cultural activist, Steve Zeitlin explores how poems serve us in daily life and how they are used in times of personal and national crisis. In the first book to bring together the perspectives of folklore and creative writing, Zeitlin explores meaning and experience, covering topics ranging from poetry in the life cycle to the contemporary uses of ancient myths. "This convergence of poetry and folklore," he suggests, "gives birth to something new: a new way of seeing ourselves, and a new way of being in the world." Written with humor and insight, the book introduces readers to the many eccentric and visionary characters Zeitlin has met in his career as a folklorist. Covering topics from Ping-Pong to cave paintings, from family poetry nights to delectable dishes at his favorite ethnic restaurants, The Poetry of Everyday Life will inspire readers to expand their consciousness of the beauty that resides in everyday things and to use creative expression to engage and animate that beauty toward living a more fulfilling awakened life, full of laughter. To live a creative life is the best way to engage with the beauty of the everyday.
