"Patricia Dischler′s hands-on experience and love of early learning radiate throughout Teaching the 3 C′s.

Cultivate the 3 Cs in young learners to strengthen future academic achievement!

Research shows that children with positive social skills, a creative nature, and a love of learning are more likely to experience success in later school years. However, today′s emphasis on early exposure to academic content means little attention is given to developing the affective skills that can make a critical difference in a child′s future. Based on her extensive experience in early childhood education, Patricia A. Dischler bridges the gap and demonstrates how incorporating the three Cs—creativity, curiosity, and courtesy—into classroom instruction can support the development of academic skills.

This resource shows how to promote school readiness by giving children a desire to learn, teaching them how to learn, and nurturing empathy, emotional intelligence, and problem solving. The book provides:

  • Abundant activities that are fun, easy to use, and developmentally appropriate
  • Engaging sidebars highlighting teacher/student dialogue
  • Methods for integrating the 3 Cs into the curriculum and meeting state standards
  • Recommendations of related children′s books
  • Activities indexed by state standards for easy curriculum planning

Practical, insightful, and brimming with wisdom, Teaching the 3 Cs illustrates how to foster young students′ lifelong enthusiasm for learning and give them the foundation to succeed!
