The Children You Teach: Using a Developmental Framework in the Classroom

Susan Engel, Senior Lecturer in Psychology and Founding Director of the Program in Teaching at Williams College. Heinemann, September 2018. Available on Amazon. This is a book of stories about students and teachers. But it is also a book about children’s development. Each chapter tells the true story of a child or teacher facing a dilemma. Weaving in research from psychological science, Susan Engel shows how to look at children through a developmental lens, which can change what happens in the classroom, and transform the craft of teaching.
