Attention: Co-ordinator of Primary and Early Learning Programs.
I am forwarding a reprint of my recent article, of which an edited version was published in the current issue of Teacher.
In 1971, with like-minded colleagues, I started a program devoted to play based and personalized learning for children aged 4-9 in a new Vancouver public school. The program continues to this day.
Having made major changes in my approach to teaching and been rewarded by my students’ responses, I share my experiences by speaking, mentoring and writing.
I wrote Honouring the Child – Changing Ways of Teaching and embarked on speaking tours to many communities in British Columbia. Through discussions with teachers and parents I became aware of a need for more succinct information and wrote a hand-book, Honouring the Child II – A Guide to Ways of Learning.
My books have been published with assistance of my husband, John Roper, through our company, tmi Publications. While single copies are available, it is more economical for school districts or groups of teachers to order copies at a substantial saving directly from our company. Our quotation is enclosed.
I invite you to visit or contact me at my website www.honouringthechild.com.
With thanks and best wishes,
Pamela M. Proctor.
