In the Sixth Edition of their classic text, the authors reiterate the critical importance of observing and recording the behavior of young children, especially in the current atmosphere of accountability and testing. In addition, because children with special needs are now widely included in a majority of early childhood classrooms, they have completely rewritten a chapter to focus more broadly on observing behaviors that may be viewed as disquieting. Designed to help teachers better understand children’s behavior, the book outlines methods for recordkeeping that provide a realistic picture of each child’s interactions and experiences in the classroom. Numerous examples of teachers’ observations of children from birth to age 8 enrich this work and make it accessible, practical, and enjoyable to read. With more than 130,000 copies in print, this valuable resource for pre- and inservice educators features: Fresh information about how children think and learn, how their language develops, and how their families, their culture, and their environment influence and help to shape them. Observations that reflect the increasingly diverse population in contemporary early childhood classrooms. The imperative for teachers to widen their lens in order to meet the needs of young children with a range of developmental capacities, abilities, and behaviors. “Responds to new knowledge about how children think, learn and develop language, and about the influences of families, culture, and other environmental influences.” —Zero to Three (previous edition)

(Book). Making it in music has never been easy, but today it's harder than ever before. The digital age has dawned and, with it, the music biz has wholly merged with the entertainment industry. Up-and-comers are immediately faced with a dire choice: alter your art to appease the powers that be or learn to navigate the notoriously grimy underside of the most glamorous profession in the world. Whether you're a self-reliant DIY musician or an aspiring personal manager, Stephen Marcone and David Philp's Managing Your Band Artist Management: The Ultimate Responsibility can help you keep your shirt and maybe just maybe make a buck, all for less than the price of a decent dinner. Now in its sixth edition, Managing Your Band has long since been the standard bearer for aspirants and hardened vets alike. From dive bars to festivals, from branding and merchandising to marketing and publicity, from publishing and licensing to rights and contracts, Marcone and Philp leave no stone unturned in this comprehensive guide to artist management. A lofty claim, eh? No need to take our word for it luminaries in every corner of the industry are willing to testify. To put it mildly, the book has a reputation with record labels. John Butler, Vice President of Promotion at Curb, believes that "Marcone and Philp take on our ever-changing business with a fresh and complete approach. The breadth of information here is as important to veterans as it is to the new entrepreneurs that will power the current and next versions of the music industry." Paul Sinclair, the EVP of Digital Strategy & Innovation at Atlantic, attests that "the 6th edition of Managing Your Band provides an excellent blueprint to follow paths of flexibility and specificity toward a successful career in music. In this book, you find the framework. Implement it well and you have a better shot of finding success with your musical art." Joe Riccitelli, the EVP/GM of RCA, considers the book "a must for new and established managers who may need a brush-up on topics they have forgotten," as "Stephen's & David's vast experience pays off in the 6th edition." Hell, this is "the only book" music mogul Harvey Leeds "took to Israel to teach the Israelis about the international music and entertainment business!" In the end, we think Doc McGhee, the man who whisked Bon Jovi and Motley Crue to superstardom, says it best: "I wish I had something like this when I was starting out!" What more can we say? Pick up the latest edition of Managing Your Band and chase that wild dream!
