Summary "Challenging Early Learning takes James Nottingham's tried and tested and acclaimed 'learning to learn' methodology and applies it to teaching 3-7 year olds. Learning how to learn includes a child knowing how they can ask questions in such a way as to illicit better answers; understanding what thoughts and behaviours will help them to learn and which will get in the way; and being able to judge when to put an ability into action at the right time for the right purpose. This book identifies some of the best ways adults can help children in early years settings do exactly that utilising feedback, challenge, dialogue, growth mindset, and the Learning Pit"-- Provided by publisher
Notes James and JillNottingham started an educational company in 1999 to support local nurseries and schools with the development of Philosophy for Children. This evolved into a multimillion-pound social regeneration project to raise the aspirations and abilities of young people in North East England. With the success of this project, early childhood centres across Scandinavia, Australia and New Zealand wanted to get involved in the Nottinghams' award-winning approaches to challenge, dialogue, feedback, questioning and progress. To meet this demand, Jill and James set up companies in Australia, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, the UK and the USA, and now employ 30 educational experts who lead, demonstrate and guide practitioners and parents in the best ways to enhance young children's learning
