Monday Memo is the story of a year in the life of a preschool director as she struggles to move her new school from their "teacher-directed-thirty-minute-circle-time-everybody-listen-do-as-I-say-letter-of-the-week-craft-and-worksheet" approach to one that uses developmentally appropriate practice and views the child as competent and capable. The challenges she faces are the same as yours: teachers who are not on board, parents who are trying to understand the change, and, of course, the typical day to day firefighting just to keep her school running. Written solely in letters: to the teachers, the parents, friends and family, Monday Memo offers insight into a director's struggles, and models responses that foster change. Fun and relevant.
