Creativity, initiative, and inquiry are important in all children's early education, including toddlers and two-year-olds. This book focuses on using the project approach—a teaching strategy that enables educators and caregivers to guide children through in-depth studies of real world topics—to scaffold very young children's early learning. It provides information on creating sensory-based experiences—developmentally appropriate for toddlers and twos—that bring new perspectives and activities into the classroom. Todd Wanerman has been teaching toddlers and twos for twenty years. He is the coauthor of Including One, Including All.

With updated information that reflects the myriad changes in the student loan industry that affect students and their parents burdened with student loan debt, CliffsNotes Graduation Debt, Second Edition provides a step-by-step road map for effectively managing student loan debt and having a successful financial life. Reyna Gobel has accumulated tens of thousands of dollars in student loans, recovered from student loan default, and set herself on a mission to help others who face a seemingly insurmountable student loan burden, with a powerful message about taking a step-by-step approach and not being overwhelmed by the sheer weight of student loan debt. Divided into small subsections geared toward those neck-deep in debt, this book is easily digestible to students who aren’t inclined to focus on their finances. Readers are encouraged to take action steps, such as finding long-lost student loans that may have gone into default, discovering payment plans they can afford, consolidating loans when it makes sense to do so, saving money on eating out and groceries, improving credit scores, tweaking their debt-to-income ratios so they can buy a home, and discussing their student loan and non-student loan debt with their significant others. By the end of the book, readers will be on the road to financial stability, with extra money for vacations and other fun stuff, too.
