Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: ''In short, this is a book for all who are committed to improving early care and education from the ground up. It is not just for those who already call themselves advocates, but is especially for teachers who may be encouraged through these pages to engage, question, reflect, and act, patiently taking small steps with the resources and support that Fennimore clearly offers. This is a book that informs us about advocacy on many levels, and, most importantly, it invites and inspires us to stand up and act.''
--From the foreword by Celia Genishi, Professor Emerita of Education, Department of Curriculum & Teaching, Teachers College, Columbia University

Standing Up for Something Every Day is written for present and future teachers in the early childhood classroom who truly want to make a difference in the lives of children. Exploring some of the most complex and pressing social and ethical dilemmas confronting early childhood educators, the author provides concrete ways of addressing social justice concerns in practice. Four model teacher-guides accompany readers from chapter to chapter, and demonstrate strategies for standing up for children through ethics, respect for diversity, and commitment to advocacy for children. This book offers important insights, encouragement, and practical suggestions to early childhood educators who are committed to excellence and equity in their classrooms.

Book Features:

* A focus on classroom life, including relationships with administrators, colleagues, and families.
* Guidance for following the NAEYC Code of Ethics.
* Questions for discussion and practical ideas for getting started.
* Teacher-guides for working in different settings: rural, suburban, and urban.
